The Sea Fish Atlas project is a SeaKeys initiative and aims to map where different fish are found in South Africa with the help of the diving and fishing communities and in fact, anyone interested in the marine environment. The Sea Fish Atlas will also link into the FishforLife project that will be launched in April 2016.
The Sea Fish Atlas will include marine fish from anywhere in South African: the deep sea, shallow reefs, kelp forests and all coastal and estuarine regions. So, if you have any photographs of fish from these regions, please consider participating.
How you can become involved:
Please upload photographs of marine fish along with information on where you photographed it and in the “descriptive tags” section, tag your observation with “Sea Fish Atlas”. Don’t worry if photographs are not “competition standard”, all we need to do is be able to identify the fish in the image, although please feel free to post amazing photos!
With your help on this project we hope to produce:
The first detailed national distribution maps for marine and estuarine fish
Updated national species lists
New species records
Encyclopaedia of Life pages
DNA barcodes
New species descriptions and identification guides
