AWARE FISH ID PADI Project AWARE Fish Identification

The PADI Project AWARE Fish Identification Course with JUSTIN'S SCUBA TIME


Have you ever been scuba diving and asked yourself, "What was that?” The PADI Project AWARE Fish Identification Specialty course at JUSTIN'S SCUBA TIME provides you with the fish identification basics so that next time, you know the answer.


The Fun Part

You’ll find you enjoy your dives even more when you recognise 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.

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.”


What You Learn

During two dives you gain hands-on (okay, eyes-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
  • Fish survey techniques and strategies
  • How to practice fish identification dive planning, organization and procedures

Contact JUSTIN'S SCUBA TIME or visit Project AWARE Foundation to download your copy today.

As you learn about fish survey techniques with JUSTIN'S SCUBA TIME you may also want ask the team about how you can brush up on your underwater photography skills so that you can document and capture images of the species you’re encountering.
