Of course when cruising Mergui Archipelago, internet isn't available so I am just looking at my favorite fish identifications books which we always keep onboard.
But if the book fails me, I have more tools in my search quest to find the name and specifics of the marine life I find underwater.
My selection of online ressources to identify the reef species you meet underwater:

Gobies http://www.gobiidae.com/ a goby specialized website
