I've recently started a new project to provide a database of fish
and coral photographs online, to help make it easier identifying
fish from all over the world. My Father has been an amateur
underwater photographer for many years and i've more recently
joined in, having learned to dive a few years back.
I've often sturggled to find pictures online or in all the reference
books, so as a programmer decided that a more organized collection
of pictures that is readily browsable by everyone, could be a great
resource online. It's set up and running with about 200 of our own
pictures entered, but we need your help.
Have a look and if you have any pictures of fish that we don't already
have in our database, or you have a better quality picture of a fish
we already have, pleaes join up and submit your photographs. If
you know the common name and latin names, all the better, but if
not, we will do our best to add all the missing information.

It's completely free to sign up and submit your photos, as underwater
photography is a passion of mine and not work, so please join.

Once you've registered you can also rate the photos. There is "Top Photos"
section and when viewing fish by location or species, they are sorted
first by species and then by their ranking, so the best pictures of each species
are always shown first.

The site is:
http://www.fishdb.co.uk

We have already had a good response and the site is growing rapidly, but
everyone is welcome to join in. We're especially short of fish from the Pacific,
but wherever you have taken photos we're interested.

Regards,
Dave

An interesting site which could be a valuable resource when trying to identify a species.
