Marine Reserve MonitoringLatest update February 27, 2018 Started on February 27, 2018
We plan to use OpenROV to monitor and evaluate the effects of marine reserves established as part of our program.
A key component of Rare's Fish Forever program is the establishment of managed access areas coupled with marine reserves. To date, we have used divers to survey the fish populations and benthic communities inside and outside of our managed access areas to document baseline conditions and to monitor the effects of these areas on ecosystem health. In the next phase of our program we plan to incorporate underwater imagery and ROV technology into our evaluation strategy.
