How to Search: Items on a search page are self explanatory but in the field for "Species" start with a capital letter when you search for names of fishes including generic names (e.g., Ostracion cubicus, not ostracion cubicus).

Users of the taxonomic and locality information contained herein should not assume absolute veracity of the information. The data included in the Locality and Date fields are taken directly from the photographer's notes. Identifications of photographed fishes are not easy in many cases but we have tried to identify them as accurately as possible.
