False Bay, South Africa
To deploy Baited Remote Underwater Video Stations (BRUVS) in False Bay, providing the first comprehensive survey of fish and sharks across all habitats.
Why this is important:
South African inshore fisheries collectively account for the capture of over 600 fish and shark species, but the logistics associated with long-term monitoring mean that the conservation status of less than 20 of these species is adequately assessed. BRUV technology represents a more cost-effective, time-efficient method of data collection with a low environmental impact that can be used for long-term ecosystem assessments.
Since 2003, the Save Our Seas Foundation has sponsored more than 160 projects in 42 countries in the areas of Research, Education, Awareness and Conservation.
