    There was a site i used in the past, http://www.mlssa.asn.au/marine.html

    Is this ^^ in anyway connected to your website?
    I ask because that site had a big list of marine life with pictures and locations of sightings. It was really helpful in identifying the different fish i had seen and finding fish i hadn’t seen yet.
    That site no longer works unfortunately. Any help in finding a new source with this kind of information would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

      Thanks Brad, that was a former version of our society’s website. You are welcome to send us a copy of your photo to info@mlssa.org.au for us to help you identify it. We also recommend the Atlas of Living Australia- though it can be a little daunting to use at first (it’s a big database).

    To be honest, i definitely liked your old version more. The accessibility was great, the fact that i could literally step out of the water, jump on my phone and find out what all the new fish I’d seen were called, was great.
    I think sending you a photo every time i see a new fish and then waiting for a reply (even if it is quick) would take the pleasure out of finding out about them.
    Thank you for your reply and your recommendation on The Atlas of Living Australia. I think I’ll give that a go instead.
    If you eventually decide to go back in the direction of your old site, please let me know as i would definitely come back to use it.
    Thank you,

    I agree, we still need the Photo Index (P.I.) accessible to all. I’m also very aware it has needed revision for a long time, with regards to correct IDs, adequate data e.g. site, depth on captions, etc.. etc.. Brad’s entirely justifiable and sincere concerns roughly match mine.
