A HEALTHIER OCEAN STARTS WITH DATA.
eShark partnered with the Great Fiji Shark Count to conduct bi-annual concentrated censuses of sharks and rays in Fiji in the months of April and November each year. Now that we have 3 years of data, the analysis has begun. This will be a telling project, as it will demonstrate the value and limitations of recreational divers for contributing scientific data at the national scale for shark and ray populations. The data are still being collected and it is expected that these data will be essential in the future as they provide a baseline for which future changes may be compared.
