Site map

Navigation in left frame denotes the main sections on this site. When you click the headlines, sub menus unfold, so you'll always know where you are. Sometimes sub-subpages are used, and in this case navigation between these pages moves to the top of the right frame. It should be fairly simple and straight-forward.

The same species of fish may have different descriptive names depending on which part of the world you're in. For Latin and English fish names I use Fishbase and Dr. Burgess's Atlas of Marine Aquarium Fishes, 3rd Edition, as my primary sources. I've included the Latin name whenever possible as this name never changes.

Moving Pix Underwater video footage from our archives. No-one would survive total exposure of it all but we've had some wonderful encounters over the years that we would love to share. The movies are either "best of trip in 5 mins" or extended highlights of a specific encounter which should be evident from the title of the clip.

Species This is not the Tree of Life but merely a layman's introduction to classification of marine life. The tricky part (for me anyway) is discussing local fishes with foreigners, so this section includes a collection of fishes in Danish waters and their corresponding English names. And as I go along I'll add to the list of Danish names for tropical fishes and other marine life.
