PADI Specialty of the month August 2008; Aware Fish ID
Have you ever asked yourself during or after a dive, "What was that?”
That yellow fish with the black dots and you can't come up with anything better than; "That was a black dotted yellow fish", whilst keeping a straight face?
The AWARE - Fish Identification Diver Specialty course will introduce you to the most common fish families and species found in temperate and tropical waters. You'll also learn basic fish identification and scientific survey techniques as well as how important personal involvement is in aquatic conservation.
The prerequisites are fairly simple, you need to be a (PADI) Open Water diver or Junior Open Water diver.
During your AWARE - Fish Identification Diver Specialty course, you'll practice basic fish identification techniques then collect fish identification data for submission to the REEF Fish Survey Project (if appropriate).
This PADI Specialty
is also under the umbrella of Project AWARE
to emphasise how important your personal involvement is in aquatic conservation.
