Protocol on Reef Assessments

The protocol is a guide on how to conduct coral assessment from site selection to photo transect method to data processing.  This is necessary to have a standardized method so that assessment data generated are comparable.  Further, considering the need to regularly update data on the country’s 6 marine bioregions (Celebes Sea, Northern Philippine Sea, West Philippine Sea, Southern Philippine Sea, Sulu Sea, and Visayan Sea) or its representative reef area, assessment teams have to be trained across the country.
