From the seventh to the sixteenth of November coral reefs across the islands were assessed following the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network protocol for the Caribbean (GCRMN-Caribbean). This protocol ties in to a global network conducting and reporting on long-term and robust coral reef monitoring, including status and trends of coral reef ecosystems, with the aim to support their conservation and management. The monitoring project was a direct result of a GCRMN workshop held in Jamaica in April of this year.
