PADI Aware Fish Identification Course
This is what it does for you.
The Aware Fish Identification course enables you to recognize and identify underwater creatures. The joy of no more asking questions, only answers!
So you’re diving and, after surfacing, have to ask your buddy or instructor the question what beautiful underwater creatures you have just encountered. That’s why PADI created the AWARE – Fish Identification Specialty course. PADI courses are designed to help you learn in the way that’s best for you. To give you answers to questions you never have to ask again.
It’s just so much more fun to familiarize with characteristics that help you identify fish. Our courses combine visual, reading, writing and practical learning techniques to ensure you really understand each section.
We teach you how to recognize patterns and fish. It will enhance your skills to refer to exact species after a scuba dive. Deciphering fish is a lot of fun and will no longer be a quiz!!

When you have mastered to recognise what types of fish you see, you’ll find it easier to reference the exact species after a scuba dive. A butterfly fish in the Caribbean has a similar shape to a butterfly fish in the Red Sea, but colours and markings may be significantly. If you know what fish family it belongs to, it makes it easier to locate the local name or at least be able to intelligently ask the local scuba instructor what you saw.
During two scuba dives, you’ll learn how to identify characteristics of local fish families and species. You will be able to detect fish survey techniques and strategies. You will get familiar with Project AWARE activities that can help protecting aquatic life
Apart from using basic scuba equipment, you will need a slate to record what you see and a fish identification card.
