Abstract: The objective of this talk is to present divers, teachers, students, researchers and others with the wealth of information about central California marine life available through the new iOS application released by NOAA's Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The free "SeaPhoto" app includes more than 1,300 photos of marine life, some with detailed ecological information. In addition to the photos of more than 550 species of marine life, the app includes an extensive, searchable glossary of common and scientific names. Users can save their favorite photos and share them via Twitter® and email. Developed in partnership with the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, SeaPhoto can be downloaded from the Apple App store www.itunes.com/apps/SeaPhoto) onto an iPhone®, iPod Touch® or iPad®. The app is a mobile extension of an even larger online photo library that contains over 4,200 photos of seascapes and marine life that can be accessed at www.sanctuarysimon.org/photos. These photos can be downloaded for free for noncommercial use. Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary stretches along the central California coast and encompasses more than 6,094 square miles of ocean.
