Andros, Bahamas

Our scientists conducted coral reef field research at the southern end of Andros Island and off Berry Island in October 2011. Using small boats to access the 10 research sites, our scientists conducted SCUBA assessments over a span of 98 dives and 111 hours of bottom-time. They examined the bottom composition, coral population structure and condition, and the total mass, size structure and composition of fish.
