New Fish ID App Released

For all the iPhone or iPad users, there’s a new free fish ID app released by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. Developed by Ross Robertson and James van Tassell, the app provides a comprehensive fish ID guide and database with 1599 species of Caribbean fishes and over 5500 identification images along with an identification guide for the shore-fish fauna of the Caribbean and adjacent areas.  This wonderful new tool includes many more Caribbean fishes than most other current publications and includes ID photos of almost every species. It also includes a notes option to keep track of your own observations. Once downloaded, it works independently with no Internet access needed, so no matter how remote the dive site is, you can still check on the fish you’ve seen right after the dive.
