Shark ID Course

Course Overview:

This course aims to develop basic shark identification skills for recreational divers. This is not an exhaustive ID guide but rather a focus on the simple “at first glance” features of several sharks species to aid in quick identification.

A combination of photographs and detailed illustrations are used to highlight the main ID features of each of the 27 species in the course.
