Marine Life Identification Project

The Dive Inn Scuba Diving School Koh Phangan Thailand

The variety of species that live within the Southern Gulf of Thailand is astounding. In an attempt to identify as many as possible, we have compiled a huge collection of photographs and descriptions of many of the species found here. View our Local Marine Life Identification Gallery to read more and possibly help us identify some unidentified species.
