Scientific Assessment of Curaçao’s Reefs
Blue Halo Curaçao, a partnership between the Waitt Institute and the Government of Curaçao, in close cooperation with researchers from CARMABI and Scripps Institution of Oceanography recently completed a Marine Scientific Assessment. The Assessment evaluated the status of Curaçao’s marine resources as well as how the island’s resources are valued and used by fishers and divers. The resulting report will be used to support development of a Sustainable Ocean Policy for Curaçao aimed at improving the health of marine ecosystems, support coastal economies and livelihoods.
