FISH IDENTIFICATION
As of January 1, 2017, DIVING FOR FUN will NO LONGER be offering training services. However, we wanted to continue to provide a list of the classes we offered along with course outlines as a reference for all our past customers.

AWARE Fish ID - Lizard FishCourse Overview: This 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. How many times have you asked what was that fish I saw? After you take the Fish Identification specialty, you will learn how to look up the fish by shape or family type.

Prerequisites: Must be at least 10 years old and certified as a Junior Open Water Diver or an Open Water Diver.

AWARE Fish ID - Squirrel FishCourse Activities: Read the chapter on Aware Fish Identification in the Adventures in Diving Manual and complete the knowledge review located at the end of the chapter. You will learn about the Project AWARE philosophy about protecting worldwide aquatic ecosystems, fish family groupings and common characteristics of fish species found in the local area, fish surveying techniques and strategies for collecting valid data and the planning, organization, and procedures for identifying fish families and species while diving. You will be introduced to fish groups such as: (1) Oval shape fish - Butterfly fish, Angel fish and Surgeon fish, (2) Small oval fish - Damselfish and Chromis, (3) Odd shaped fish - Peacock Founder or Scorpion fish, Triggerfish, Filefish, Eels, Sharks and Rays. You will get to use your new knowledge on the 2 dives performed under instructor supervision.
  • Classroom: There is one classroom session. The classroom session will cover the chapter, "Project AWARE - Fish Identification" in the Adventures in Diving Manual, review your knowledge review answers, and prepare you for both of the open water dives.
  • Independent Study: Read the chapter about Project AWARE - Fish Identification in the Adventures in Diving manual and complete the knowledge review located at the end of the chapter. You will need to turn in the knowledge review prior to certification or provide a copy of an Adventure Log signed by an appropriate instructor if you have already done dive one in connection with your Adventure Diver or Advanced Open Water Diver Certification.
  • Open Water Dives: The 2 open water dives are done at a blue water dive destination or on a dive trip.
AWARE Fish ID - Gobe FishForms Required: Students training will need to complete the three (3) forms: Liability Release, Statement of Understanding, and Medical Statement prior to entering the water.

Materials/Equipment Required: Adventures in Diving Manual. Recommended: the Reef Fish in-a-Pocket Book.

Length of Course: If you have read the Project AWARE Fish Identification chapter in the Adventures in Diving Manual, completed the knowledge review prior to coming to class then the classroom will last approximately 1 hour depending upon class size.
