Local Species


New England Species

Whether you view the water from above or below, you may have wondered just what calls our local waters home. There are some awesome reference books available – they were used in the creation of this page. Many of our members keep them in their cars for post-dive IDs. But if you’re just looking for a quick ID and dichotomous keys aren’t your forte, you’ve come to the right place! Feel free to let us know what you think about the page or send us some of your images (webmaster@seconndivers.org). Species featured here are one you will most likely encounter in Southeastern Connecticut and Rhode Island, but images were taken from CT to ME. Stay tuned as it is an ongoing project – big thanks to the members who’ve contributed!
