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.
Thanks Brad, that was a former version of our society’s website. You are welcome to send us a copy of your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org 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).
You could also try the Fishes of South Australia page on iNaturalist, which has 255 fish species so far, and more than 6,000 observations: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/fishes-of-south-australia
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.
Our old site is available once more, Brad
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.

Have you heard there are sea horses in port Augusta I have a photo of some that some boys collected at the pontoon near the yacht club
Yes, thanks Brett. Please share those photos with us if you are still able to
Your information is of particular interest because MLSSA is aware that several seahorse experts (one at the South Australian Museum, one from USA who regularly visits SA) are currently trying to determine whether the Shorthead seahorses at places in the upper Spencer Gulf are the same as those in the lower Gulfs including around Adelaide, or whether they might be subspecies or at least genetically separate populations.
I’m a MLSSA committee member who I believe has the greatest personal interest in this matter (within MLSSA) because of my amateur interest in South Australian seahorses, pipefish and their kin over decades.
Feel free to contact me,initially through this portal and then if you are happy to chat on the phone I would provide my mobile phone number, no worries.
Hi Natasha, we have just sent a membership application form to you for completion.
There are lots of seahorses up at Port Augusta, as Jeff Bowey up there will tell you.
Good luck with your studies.
Thanks for contacting me and MLSSA.
Steve Reynolds our president has responded appropriately I feel, but if you don’t wish to join MLSSA feel free to contact me again,
Hi MLSSA, would you have volunteer opportunities for a tertiary student?
Possibly, Angela. What are your interests?
Books, references, media, computers, lobbying, submissions?
We haven’t heard from you Angela. Did you get our message? What is your email address?
