Reef Fish Identification: Florida, Caribbean, Bahamas - Interactive DVD Edition is the most comprehensive scientific reference of its kind -- the product of more than 12 years of scientific research, photographic expeditions, and collaboration with academic experts. Whether you're a beginning fishwatcher looking for a learning tool or an ichthyologist looking for an accurate reference, this electronic field guide is for you.

At the core of the Interactive Edition is a database of 842 unique species known to inhabit the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico, and adjacent waters. Each species is described in meticulous detail and is accompanied by a giant library of visual material:

  • 4500 photographs and sketches illustrating important features, markings, colours, etc.
  • 1800 video clips illustrating both typical and unusual behaviours.

Several species descriptions now include exclusive "first-ever" photographs and video. A number of previously undescribed species are also documented.

Other interactive features include:

  • A species browser which can be sorted by common name, scientific name, family name, or ID group.
  • A multi-key search engine. Search by over 50 characteristics such as size, colours, markings, and behaviours.
  • A fish quiz customizable for the user's skill level.
  • A sighting log in which the users can track noteworthy sightings.
  • An illustrated glossary of scientific terms and definitions.
  • An interactive map of the islands of the Caribbean.
  • A multimedia show designer for designing custom presentations.
