Encuestas de referencia de la BRUV, Cabo Verde oriental

We have monitored marine megafauna in Eastern Cabo Verde around the islands of Boavista, Maio and Sal since 2015. Working with traditional fishers and students we use baited remote under video (BRUV) deployed systematically around the islands based on a spokes-on-a-wheel design, that generated a baseline of abundance and distribution of sharks, rays and large finfish species. The surveys have revealed patterns of diversity, distribution that have further highlighted several critical foraging and nursery habitats.
