Download Oman Fish ID App
Those brave enough to dive in Oman's as yet little know waters will be interested in a great new App for iPhone and iPad just published by Richard Field and John Hoover.
John Hoover dived with Jack Randall to produce the fish bible for Oman, Coastal Fishes of Oman, whilst Richard Field wrote the excellent identification guide for divers titled Reef Fishes of Oman. You can download it from the iTunes Store.
The app contains descriptions of 470 species with 900 Photos, ranging from Khasab on the Arabian Gulf to Salalah on the Yemen border. It contains fish from the Gulf of Oman, the Arabian Sea and the Persian (Arabian) Gulf. Flip through screens like pages of a book, or find a fish quickly by color or shape. There are up to 5 photos per fish - showing juveniles, males, females and colour variations. You can even use the logbook feature to record sightings.
If you are interested in learning more about the diving around Oman, check out our website.
