If you are doing a training survey, detailed instructions for using the team survey form are also available on the Survey Forms page.

The Volusia County Reef Team survey form is designed so that fish identification and count data can be manually transferred to the Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF). Any diver who can identify local fish can submit a survey to REEF on-line, where your fish count information may be added to REEF's worldwide database. This data base can be viewed at the REEF Web site.

The fish count data for the central east coast of Florida is posted under zone 3101. To submit a survey to REEF on-line, access the REEF data entry program at http://www.reef.org/dataentry (you will need a Member ID). To determine the eight digit zone code for the site you visited, go to http://www.reef.org/data/twazonelist1.shtml and scroll down to zone 3101xxxx to check if the site you visited is listed. If the site is not listed, email REEF as directed on the site.
