Fish Identification Diver training in Koh Lanta
“What is that fish we saw?”
is a frequently asked question after a dive. If you want to be the diver who answers rather than the one who asks the questions, then take the PADI course – Fish Identification Diver in Koh Lanta. You enjoy your dives that much more when you recognize the creatures you see and can identify the main fish families and their characteristics here on Koh Lanta.
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 diver course in Koh Lanta.
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. For example, a butterfly fish in the Caribbean has a similar shape to a butterfly fish in Southeast Asia, but colors and markings may be wildly different. 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
- 6’900 THB – Training on 1 day, 2 dives
