Aware – Fish Identification

Padi Aware – Fish Identification

Back to PADI Courses >>>

 

The Fun Part

After the Padi Aware Fish Identification program you’ll be able to recognize the creatures that you see and identify the main fish families and their characteristics.

Who should take this program?

“What was that fish?”, bored of asking this question? Then take the AWARE – Fish Identification Specialty 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.
If you’re at least 10 years old and a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher, you can enroll in the AWARE – Fish Identification course.

What will you learn?

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. If you know what fish family it belongs to, you can more easily look up the local name or at least be able to intelligently ask the local scuba instructor what you saw. 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

What scuba gear will you use?

Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you’ll want a slate to record what you see and a fish identification card if available for your area. Your PADI Instructor may suggest additional equipment or references depending on what you’re likely to see on your dives.

What learning materials you will need?
