PADI Fish Identification speciality

“What was that fish?” is a common question heard after a dive. If you want to have the answers instead of being the one asking the questions take the Fish Identification speciality course.

You’ll enjoy your dives even more when you recognize the creatures that you see and can identify the main fish families and their characteristics.

Once you learn to recognize what types of fish you see, you’ll find it easier to reference the exact species after a scuba dive. For example, a butterfly fish in the Caribbean has a similar shape to a butterfly fish in Southeast Asia, but colors and markings may be wildly different. 

During two scuba dives, you’ll learn:

  • How to identify characteristics of local fish families and species
  • Fish survey techniques and strategies
  • About Project AWARE activities that can help protect aquatic life
