Coral Reef Monitoring Network

Key figures from the 2020 report

Are you a seasoned coral reef surveyor with experience conducting benthic surveys, habitat complexity assessments, fish abundance surveys, or fish biomass surveys in the Arabian/Persian Gulf or the Gulf of Oman? If so, we want to hear from you!

Our team is currently compiling a comprehensive database of all coral reef monitoring surveys conducted in the region. By pooling together data from various sources, we aim to enhance our understanding of the dynamic changes and patterns occurring over time and space in these vital ecosystems.

Do you have valuable insights to share about your surveyed reef? Is it located within a protected area, or have you observed major disturbances that may have affected the site? We're eager to gather this information to enrich our database and inform future conservation efforts.

As a data provider, you'll have the opportunity to be recognized as a co-author on an upcoming data paper highlighting our findings. Additionally, you'll have the chance to contribute to the regional chapter of the prestigious Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network’s Status of Coral Reefs of the World Report.
