MBRS FISH AND CORAL MONITORING
The data on fish we gather during the SMP helps us determine the abundance and the size
of fish to understand the changes in the community dynamics and will lead us to identify the
human impacts in the area.

The coral and sessile (anemones, algae etc) data can be used to understand
the growth/recovery rates as well as giving us an ongoing view on the overall
health of the reef.
