REEF Volunteer Fish Survey Project


Contribute to the understanding of marine ecosystems.
Record and upload pictures/data of fish you see while diving

The Reef Volunteer Fish Survey Project allows volunteer SCUBA divers and snorkelers to collect and report information on marine fish populations. Keep track of the fish you see while scuba diving or snorkeling. Submit those to an online database.

REEF surveys can be done anywhere along coastal areas of North and Central America, Bahamas and Caribbean, tropical eastern Pacific islands, Hawaii, and the South Pacific.
