Comoros 2018

Dr. Lucy Woodall, working with Wild Trust and other partners such as CORDIO, conducted a 4 week expedition in October 2018. LW and R Palmer (SAIAB) collected benthic video surveys using the ROV. Samples were analysed at the Nekton Indian Ocean taxonomic workshop in June 2019. Initial findings are being communicated with the Comoros partners in December 2019, and undergraduates from the University of Oxford are continuing to analyse data under Lucy Woodall’s supervision and these results will be used to help improve management practices by the Comoros partners.
