What's New

A few photos added & minor corrections made.

App Description

Updated September 2023. Covers all shallow-water reef fish commonly seen by snorkelers (and some rare ones too). Flip through screens like pages of a book, or find a fish quickly by color or shape (the only fish app with these features). Up to 5 photos per fish -- showing juveniles, males, females, color variations. Save fish you've seen in the Log Book. Watch videos for each fish too! And now you can sharpen your fish ID skills with Quiz Mode.

- For snorkelers and beginning scuba divers.
- 205 species** / 600+ photos!
- Identify fish by color, shape, family group, or name (common, scientific, Hawaiian).
- Multiple photos of most fish.
- Flashcard-style quiz.
- Videos of all fish (requires internet).
- Logbook: save fish, add notes, share Logbook (text only).
- Links to Fishbase and Reef.org for each fish.
- Works great on iPads too.

** Only half of Hawaii's 400+ shore fish live at snorkeling depths. For easier ID, faster download and smaller footprint, this app omits deeper-dwelling fish. For a more complete set of fish, see my app Scuba Fish Hawaii.
