AquaNotes web portal
In progress AquaNotes is a web portal based on 'Aquatic Notes' that link taxonomy, geography and ecology. It is under construction and its main current use is to share fish biodiversity survey data including images. The portal is aimed at experienced and aspiring marine naturalists and, in time, will help with identification of fishes and teach about their distribution, behavior, habitat requirements and more.
Coastal fish biodiversity surveys
Coastal fish biodiversity survey data is being transformed from static lists to a dynamic database-driven tool that is now part of AquaNotes. There you can navigate to your area of interest to see data and images.
This link will be rewritten to give information on fish survey goals and methods.

Underwater photographer
AquaNotes is based on photographs that allow confirmation of identification and comparison of appearance across regions, life stages, etc. This section of the site discusses equipment, techniques, and other information about using Underwater photography as a documentation tool.
Dive Travel
Tropical beach
Coming soon
My ideal dive destination offers a mix of boat diving and a good house reef where you can dive unguided, either solo or with a buddy. To make multi-month trips I also need to avoid upscale resorts. If this meets your dive interests then this future section will give you ideas of locations to visit.
Systema Naturae by Linnaeus
Correctly naming species is critical and AquaNotes uses Eschmeyer's Catalog of Fishes (CoF) as the authority on scientific fish names. AquaNotes also enables advanced searches of CoF data via this link. This is mostly for data scientists and advanced users. But there is more to come.
