Findex with Jim

Welcome to the Findex, an in depth look at the fish and coral life in the sea. We will take a look at the fish and critters that everyone will see while they are diving but maybe don’t know much about or don’t get as much time in the spotlight as the big stuff! Every fortnight we will look at a different region that Scuba Travel goes to looking at stuff from tiny to huge. Jim is a qualified marine biologist with over 10 years experience in the field studying marine life so if you have any questions feel free to get in touch!
