Great app for fish id!

I found this app when I moved to New Caledonia. It has been amazing for identifying to species the fish in the region. High quality photos and fairly easy to use interface. I wish you could track fish encountered and that the page didn’t reset when you click the back button. Other than that, what an incredible app!!
