Fish & Benthic Surveys

A key component to assessing coral reef health involves diligent fish and benthic habitat surveys. 

We offer this training as part of our field course package. Students will learn the basics of Caribbean reef fish identification, coral and other habitat characteristics, as well as how to document this information underwater and process it in the lab. There is no substitution for experiencing these techniques hands-on. Additionally, we offer this service to private organizations seeking environmental impact assessments.
