PADI Fish ID Specialty Course

It’s the most common question divers ask: What is that fish called? The opportunity to see brilliantly colored tropical fish and other marine creatures in their natural environment is among the chief reasons many of us dive. Yet doing so is nowhere near as fun as it could be if you don’t know:

  • The names of the animals you are looking at
  • What makes them unique
  • What relatives they may have in different oceans of the world

Fortunately, there is no need to remain in the dark. In a short period of time, you can master the names of the most common fish, plus learn fascinating facts about their origin an behavior.
