Have you ever been scuba diving and asked yourself, "What was that?”
What do I need to start?
The PADI Project AWARE Fish Identification Specialty course provides you with the fish identification basics so that next time, you know the answer.
The Fun Part
This course will help you enjoy your dives even more because once you learn the main fish families and characteristics it will help you decipher the species you see all over the world
The fun part about this course is you can use the skills you learn on every scuba diving vacation you do, this is because once you learn the main fish families and characteristics it will help you decipher the species you see all over the world.
During your two open water dives you will gain hands on experience in looking for and identifying the fascinating fish you see underwater.
For example, a butterfly fish in the Caribbean has a similar shape to a butterfly fish in Southeast Asia, but their colors and markings maybe wildly different. If you know what fish family it belongs to, it becomes much easier to look up the local name or at least be able to intelligently ask the local scuba instructor what you saw. That works better than asking about a “yellow thingy with a funny tail fin.”
