FISH ID (Caribbean reef marine life identification guide) BY:
Pablo started his job as an underwater Videographer in the year 1996 in Grand Cayman. Sites as Stingray City and Oro Verde were some of his first dives with a video camera. He was also diving in Utila, Cozumel, Belize, Cuba and Venezuela.
In May 1996 he settle down in Roatan, Bay Islands. He has been diving in Roatan for more than 10 years, capturing underwater images all around this enchanted Island, which is situated in the north coast of the Honduras Caribbean Bay. He created and produced the “Fish ID Video”, based on some of his best selection footage of marine life and some shots that his friend Cesar Rodas provided him, with the purpose of educating divers and Snorkellers about the fish identification and the behavior of the different species, which inhabit in this magnificent and wealthy ecosystem.
This “Fish ID video” is a high resolution (3CCD) 28 minutes in total, available in an interactive DVD, where you’ll be able to find the regular and scientific names of more than 120 of the most common species separated in family chapters (family selection) showed as pictures (frames) for your easy searching, and you can access them with just one click on the picture.There is not only fish in this video, you’ll also find marine reptiles such as sea turtles, crustaceans such as lobsters, crabs and shrimps, cnidarians (Jelly fish), echinoderms such as brittle stars, mollusks; squids, octopuses and snails and a special section of rays and sharks.
This video has also background music composed by a well-known music artist from Honduras mainland, Guillermo Anderson, who made an interesting fusion of local Garifuna Punta Rythms with Contemporary World Beat music.
