Pacific Coral Reef Institute

Workshop in the Solomon Islands (September 2013)

The University of the South Pacific (USP) Honiara campus, Solomon Islands, the Secretariat of the Pacific Community in New Caledonia (SPC), IFREMER in New Caledonia and the French Institute for Pacific Coral Reefs at Moorea, French Polynesia (IRCP) have joined in a partnership to develop and offer the « Different survey methods of coral reef fish, including the methods based on underwater video«  workshop.

This workshop was funded by the French Embassy (Pacific Fund). There were two key objectives to the workshop: to allow USP students (8 students involved in this workshop) to learn the different techniques of fish monitoring; and to increase capacity at the level of USP, government and NGO staff (20 persons) already involved in fish monitoring, particularly with regards to recent underwater video techniques and data analysis tools.

There were several articles released in the news : The Solomonstar and La Dépêche. Clic on the links to download the reports in English and in French.
