There is nothing difficult about recording. It may become time-consuming, but generally, if simple rules are followed, it becomes routine. The blank recorders form included with this article is a starter -- plenty more are available. It is self explanatory assuming the main parts of a bony fish are understood.
The best location to observe fish in the dry are places like dhow harbors, breakwaters, and fish souks. However, the fish seen in the souks may not have been caught in the Gulf, or even UAE waters.
To those people who wish to observe in the wet, probably the best method is by photography. Many identifications have been achieved through slides and negatives supported by other information such as location, type of sea bottom (rock, coral, sands) and water depth.
