Fishbrain's fish identification feature, Fish ID can identify the species caught by opening the phone's camera or from the first uploaded photo and the catch location.

To identify the fish species you just caught, simply tap the "+" button at the bottom of the screen and select "Fish ID" or upload your picture while you're logging your catch.

In order to give the best possible suggestions, a good quality photo showing as much of the fish as possible, side-on with fins raised.

The location is important because it tells the app which species to include or exclude from the suggestions.

Our Fish Identification AI model contains hundreds of the most popular sport fishing species but for those species not yet in the model we also suggest species of fish you may have recently caught, and/or other species that are popular in your area.

Single photos with multiple species will result in suggestions for only one of the species.

You may be surprised to see species suggested if the photo does not contain a fish. Those suggestions will be based on your recent catches and/or those species popular in your area.
