Indian Ocean and Red Sea Fish ID Log
This is a subset of common marine life you should expect to see in the Indian Ocean and Red Sea.
Within the Indian Ocean it concentrates on the west side running down the African coast line, so Zanzibar and Madagascar are covered. It also focuses on the Red Sea and Arabian Gulf and then ventures out towards Sri Lanka, the Maldives, and the Seychelles.
The set includes details for 208 different species, including fish, sharks and rays, marine mammals, reptiles, crustaceans, and marine invertibrates.
As well as fish id information at your fingertips, each species listing has an integrated sightings and notes section right alongside. Use this for any special notes or direct reference back to that special dive where you had that special fish encounter.
We print these on a special glossy card to really make the images pop and the details pin sharp.
The set contains 32 pages (16 sheets) for the 3-ring binder and DiveLogs compact binder size. For the personal organiser size, this increases to 50 pages (25 sheets) to ensure the information is present at a useful size. For all the information included, the set is still a compact thickness so will fit well within your dive log binder. It has never been easier to take fish identification information with you when you are travelling or need a spontaneous quick reference.
We also have a fully waterproof version that you can take on your next dive!
Also included is our specially developed visual identification index. Using just a few simple cues such as species type (fish, reptile, shark etc.), the size, and the tail type, you can quickly narrow down the list of species it could be. Adding in any special markings such as stripes, bands of colour or spots etc, can narrow it down further. You can see this in one of the product images above.
Each species listing is packed full of usefull information such as distribution maps, water columns showing typical depths, size gauges, and info icons.
The info icons are arranged in four types. Locations, Alliances, Activities, and Characters.
Locations show you where you should expect to find the species, alliances indicate whether they are solitary or they form pairs or groups or schools, activities highlights what they typically get up to, and characters shows you any special behaviours you should look out for.
