Field Guide & Datasheets

Refresh your memory often.   Test your species skills and keep them sharp by reviewing the field guide when you’re not in the water.   Get to know your datasheets – this will help you collect data more efficiently.  To make it a little easier, we broke it down by category.

Just a Tip: Don’t overwhelm yourself.  Focus your efforts on Genus rather than specific species names – especially for corals.
