Discover the fish that live in UK waters, and you can meet on your ocean and rock pool adventures

Service Description

The oceans are full of fascinating and beautiful fish of all shapes and sizes. When we explore rock pools, go snorkelling or on a SCUBA dive there is so much to see and when you know where to look, you can discover even more. The SSI Fish Identification Course teaches you about the fish you encounter and what you need to help you identify a fish see for the first time. Your online manual will focus on the common but colourful fish families of Caribbean, Indo-Pacific, and Red Sea reef fish. Then in a presentation workshop we add unique additional sections to cover the fish you are most likely to encounter along the South Coast of England. We look at their ICUN status, and where and when you are likely to encounter them. Who is suitable for? Anyone aged over six who has an interest in marine ecology. Do I have to get in the water? No this is a land-based course open to everyone with an interest. You have the option to add a rock pool session. Certified Snorkel Divers or Open Water Divers can add a snorkel, or shore dive at Selsey, to see how many you can discover for yourself. Just ask for details of the cost and how to add this to your course when booking. Come and discover the rich biodiversity of the Sussex seas. What is included in my course fee?
