SPRINGS FIELD GUIDE
SPRINGS FISH Field guide
At the Florida Springs Institute we think the best views at the springs are found underwater. Getting under the surface with a mask and snorkel is like being in a giant, crystal clear aquarium full of a startling variety of brilliant and amazing creatures.
These short, 1-2 minute videos were designed to train citizen science volunteers in fish identification for the Florida Springs Institute’s SpringsWatch program. We’ve made them available to everyone in the hopes that you will not only be able to identify the fish you encountered during your last visit to the springs, but also that you’ll be inspired to go back again and again to find all of the life and beauty within Florida’s springs.
