Projects range from geology to trawling impacts on the seafloor, estimating fish populations by video transect, Sanctuary monitoring using data buoys, sidescan sonar and other technologies. Examples of current projects: conducting a study on the movement patterns of fish in the area; efforts to understand the roles of "choices" fishes might make in their behaviors, and its impact on diversity of species found in reef fish communities and a study designed to inventory the invertebrates and fish communities and analyze how those communities are impacted by fishing activities. Appropriate for grades 9 and up.
