The Caribbean facing state of Quintana Roo possesses over 500 km of the MesoAmerican Reef and hosts key aggregation sites for several megafauna including whale sharks, manta rays and reef sharks. We have established permanent sites where we conduct standardized long-term monitoring of coastal and reef-associated marine megafauna.

Accomplishments

  • Completed the marine megafauna baseline for multiple sites throughout Quintana Roo
  • Conducted a trade in skills between Belize and Mexican fishers, where Belizean fishers taught Mexican fishers monitoring skills and Mexican fishers taught Belizeans how to fish live lobster using the non-destructive loop stick
  • Monitoring skills training and peer to peer exchange between Belize and Mexican and Mexican, Honduran and Panamanian fishers
