Take the Plunge!
It is time that the fascinating marine life of the Northern Gulf waters goes electronic!
The nutrient-rich Kuwaiti sea hosts marine life of amazing wealth and diversity. Largely unknown to wider audiences, this underwater universe comprises hundreds of species, at least half of which inhabit the clear coral reef waters of southern Kuwait as well as the northern, silty waters of the Tigris-Euphrates Delta.
In the framework of their mission as researchers and volunteers of the Kuwait Turtle Conservation Project, several marine life enthusiasts put together this iPhone App which, for the first time in the Gulf, presents:
•Lists of over 200 marine life species in Kuwaiti waters
(Listed by Common Name, Scientific Name or Family)
•A photo gallery of these animals for random browsing
•An email option: Find your fish in the photo gallery and send it to your friends: Photo and all other information about it.
•User-friendly descriptions of the fish for all audiences and all ages
Divers, snorkelers, fishermen, marine naturalists, students, teachers and every fan of the underwater life in the northern Gulf will find lots of information and enjoyment in this App, which we hope to upgrade soon with more species and local photography.
