About Franko Maps, Monterey Peninsula Fish ID-Card

Franko's Map of Monterey Peninsula & Fish Identification Card
Side 1 shows Franko's Map of Monterey Peninsula, which consists of information borrowed from Franko's Map of Monterey, adapted to this fish card use. It shows the major dive sites of the peninsula, including Del Monte Beach, Wharf #2, Coast Guard Wharf, Mertridium Field, Mc Abee Beach, Hopkins Reserve, Lover's Point, Otter Cove, Chase Reef, Coral Street, Point Pinos, Moss Cove, Point Joe, Cypress Point, Lingcod Reef, East Pescadero Pinnacle, Pescadero Pinnacles, Stillwater Cove, Copper Roof House, Butterfly House, Carmel River, Monastery Beach and Mono-Lobo. The major roads, including 17-Mile Drive and the show the user how to get around everywhere from the Monterey Bay Aquarium to Pacific Grove, as well as Carmel, Pebble Beach, Spanish Bay, Carmel Bay and Cannery Row.

Side 2 is Franko's Monterey Peninsula Kelp Forest Creatures. This side of the card identifies 60+ species of fish and other kelp forest creatures all beautifully illustrated. Cooler water means a different species than the fish cards from Southern California, and so this fish card shows the Wolf Eel and Monkey Face Eel, but it does not show the moray eel or the spiny lobster, which only lives further south. Lots of kinds of rockfish are also included. Certain species, such as the sheep head, bat ray, horn shark, ochre sea star, lingcod, spotted scorpion fish, giant kelpfish and others are common to kelp forests up and down the entire California coast. An ascending sea otter is also shown, as he rises to the surface after a hunt. Colorful invertebrates are common in Monterey waters, and a few, including a nudibranch - the Spanish shawl, and a bat star is shown. The fish card measure (H x L) 5.5" x 8.5" (14cm x 21.6cm), is printed on laminated plastic so that it is stiff, shiny and waterproof. It has a hole for a lanyard, so you can actually take it diving or snorkeling. Card makes a great gift idea. Note that the card is sized just right for 3-ring binder-type dive logs. Divers who keep dive log booklets can put this card into their log book to keep track of where they've been, plus what species of fish they've seen.
