Marine Life ID

Links to some websites that may be of use if you have seen a critter on a dive and need help to identify it. Also useful if you just want to brush up on your knowledge of British marine life!

The Marine Life Information Network – An excellent place to start when trying to identify something you have seen on a dive. Organized by major group and species with description, photographs, distribution and lots of other interesting information all presented in a well ordered website that is easy to read and search.

Encyclopedia of Marine Life of Britain and Ireland – Another useful reference site but not quite as user friendly as the MarLIN site.

British Marine Life Pictures – Jason Gregory’s website of British marine life photography. – Jim Greenfield’s photographs of British marine plants and animals.
