Get hooked on surveying fish by joining in the Great Annual Fish Count (GAFC)! Every July, divers and snorkelers from all over the world participate in this monthlong initiative to learn about marine fish identification and conducting REEF surveys. Individuals and groups can organize their own surveying or fish ID events, and some even add to the fun by incorporating raffles, cookouts, and more! If that sounds like a fun way to spend a summer day this July, check out the GAFC calendar to find an event near you. If you don't see an event in your area, you can organize your own fish identification class or group survey. Visit to learn more about the GAFC and see tips for organizing an event.
