FISHIEST REEF, THE cover image
"It was nice how they to make it real by doing the breathing sounds like you are really underwater." "The film gives insight into what it is like to be underwater. It doesn't show the camera, because the diver is supposed to be YOU." Most kids agreed it was too long, some would have liked to know the names of the fish, but others agreed it would be annoying to have a narrator. "The music was above average and seemed to be trying to lend wonder to what you're seeing, but its efficacy in that respect was questionable." "I became more observant as I searched for all the fish." "Makes me want to learn more about diving." "Fish are so strange, interesting, foreign, so the film entices me to understand them and their environment better." This seems to play best to older kids who had longer attention spans and didn't need immediate entertainment.
You are diving the Bari Reef! As you enter the water, you encounter fish and plant life in every color of the imagination. Eels appear and disappear into small rock like structures. Fish seem to be conversing with one another, gliding before your eyes in schools, and exhibiting tricks before the camera. There are gardens of coral to rest beside while listening to the peaceful sound of the water. This otherworldly adventure has no instruction to guide your thoughts. You are on your own to observe and experience your surroundings. A narrator is not needed; in this film the fish speak for themselves. By going through the dive from start to finish you will notice a diverse and multitudinous amount of life that you may be experiencing for the first time, or enjoying identifying those you are familiar with. The menu includes an option to play slideshow, which are photos the diver has taken during the adventure. It serves a s a companion to the dive, and is very helpful in identifying fish you see in the main movie.
Dive off the Caribbean Island of Bonaire, on a reef where divers have identified more species of fish than have been found anywhere else in the Caribbean Sea. Over 50 species of fish appear in this film, among the many corals and sponges.
