Updated February 2019. Covers all shallow-water reef fish commonly seen by snorkelers (and a lot of 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. Each fish has a professional quality video also.

- For snorkelers and beginning scuba divers.
- 205 species* / 553 photos!
- Identify fish by color, shape, family group, scientific name, Hawaiian name, English name.
- Multiple photos of most fish.
- Videos of all fish. **
- Logbook: save fish, share Logbook (text only).
- Works great on iPads too.

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

** Videos require internet connection **

Needs a way to log where & when you saw each fish.

That's all.

Developer Response ,

Thanks, adding a notes capability would definitely be a good feature. Maybe in next release. Meanwhile, the Logbook can already sort by date, so you can see when you added a fish. From the date you can probably figure out approximately where you saw it.
