Photos for fishing regs phone app

(1/2) > >>

Zpearo:
Hey all,

There is a phone app (currently only available on the east coast) that lists all the current fishing regulations for each species along with pictures of that species. I think this is a great idea to help new people getting into the sport, so I've been working to convince the app creators to speed up their expansion to California. They said that the best thing I can do to speed the development is to gather pictures of local species. I'm going to start taking some good pictures of my kills now and try to get some good underwater photos too if possible. If any of you have good identifying photos that you'd like to contribute, that would be great too. The examples I got from the app creators are:

"Ideally, we want photos that show the full body of the fish like this:

If there are particular markings that help identify the species, a zoomed in pic is helpful:

Underwater shots are nice, too.
Basically, we'll take whatever pics you can get. But, busy backgrounds and weird angles are not that helpful.
Also, add the photographer's name and the species name to the picture file name, so we know what species it is and who gets credit for the pic."

I'm going to start gathering these photos up and get them sent over so hopefully we'll have a fully functional CA species and regulations app by the end of 2016.

Update: The app is called FishRules (http://www.fishrulesapp.com)
For pictures, send them to photos@fishrulesapp.com with the subject line "CA fish pic." You probably also want to include your info in the subject/body if you'd like photo credit.

Nice work.  I can help send photos if needed.

For now, maybe just post the pictures on here (full resolution if possible). I'll work with them and see if they can set up a submission system or dropbox link.

What's the name of the app?
