The pics in this thread are to assist in the correct identification of the marine life that you are likely to encounter on any given dive. We will also try to add information on eating qualities and catch/bag limits, legal sizes and open/closed seasons.



These pics have been pulled from everywhere so if one of them is yours and you don't want it posted in here let me know! The pics will be updated as better ones are added.
