Presenting at the WIOMSA symposium

The Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Assocation (WIOMSA), alongside the Kenyan Marine Fisheries Research Institute (KMFFRI) have organised a scientific symposium in Mombasa this week (from the Monday the 24th to the Thursday the 27th of October), focusing on the issues around Coping with Global Change.
In April, GVI Kenya’s marine team submitted abstracts on a series of topics and findings from our research programme on the south coast under themes of global change and the marine environment, biodiversity and ecological processes and over-exploitation of resources and. And we had three abstracts accepted for poster presentations at the symposium! The next four blogs will describe the focus of the presentations GVI will make and the significance of the data being collected. See you in Mombasa!
