This is a one-day course aimed at giving divers new to the project and new to marine recording a basic grounding. At the end of the course you should be able to complete the Seasearch Observation Form and take part in Seasearch Dives either on your own, with your club or on dives organised by Seasearch Partners.
During the course you’ll learn about Seasearch – its aims, history and achievements, a basic introduction to the variety of marine life in British and Irish waters, recognising and classifying marine habitats, position fixing, and how to fill in the Observation Form. The day concludes with a ‘video dive’ and an opportunity to fill in a form without even getting wet!
The course includes a course pack and identification guides and recording slates are available to purchase giving you everythng you’ll need to go ahead and get started. The tutors are all divers themselves and keen Seasearchers.
