Make a difference in marine conservation — join REEF’s Great Annual Fish Count! Every July, divers and snorkelers across the world join to learn about marine diversity and conduct fish surveys as a part of REEF’s ongoing Volunteer Fish Survey Project.
In honor of the occasion, Blue Planet will be offering a special on Fish ID classes:
Sign up for a Fish ID class in the month of July and once you complete your 2 training dives with Blue Planet on a trip, we’ll give you a free copy of the Reef Fish Identification (Travel Edition): Caribbean, Bahamas, South Florida!
- Sign up for the AWARE Fish ID specialty class with us.
- You can complete the classroom training with us on Thursday, July 25 or another time; we hold classes every month.
- Then join us on any of our trips and we can complete your two training dives. We’ll teach you the basics of fish identification and how to run your own fish surveys and then report your results to REEF.
How does this help conservation efforts?
Once your survey information is submitted online to REEF, the data are processed via REEF’s standardized data management and quality control protocols and then are uploaded into a centralized database that is available on REEF’s website. In addition to use by the general and diving public, the data are available to scientists and resource managers.
