For example, a butterfly fish has a similar shape to a butterfly fish, 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.
During two dives you gain hands-on experience in looking for and identifying the fascinating fish you see underwater. You’ll learn :
- How to identify characteristics of local fish families and species
- AWARE Fish ID survey techniques and strategies
- How to practice fish identification dive planning, organization and procedures
Have you ever been scuba diving and asked yourself, “What was that?”
The PADI Project AWARE Fish ID Identification Specialty course provides you with the fish identification basics so that next time, you know the answer.
You’ll find you enjoy your dives even more when you recognize the creatures that you see. The fun part about this course is you can use the skills you learn on every scuba diving vacation because once you learn the main fish families and characteristics it will help you decipher the species you see all over the world.
To take this course, you need to have a rating of PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher, and be at least 10 years old.
