Fish Identification


Fish Identification

Part One


The first of two Fish Identification Certification dives.

The most exciting part of the week in Lanzarote for me was the Project AWARE – Fish Identification Specialty. I learned to recognise more of the underwater creatures and how to identify the main fish families and their characteristics. Two great dives, thoroughly enjoyable as well as educational.

The course included; a pre-dive briefing, slate preparation, equipment preparation, pre-dive safety check, entry into the water, scuba descent, observing and identifying fish familes, recording sightings, sketching and describing unfamiliar fish, post dive debrief, logging the dive.
