Description

The Perry Institute for Marine Science is a not-for-profit organization committed to protecting the oceans through research that both informs the public and encourages action, ultimately improving understanding and stewardship of the oceans. The Institute has been conducting research in support of ocean conservation and stewardship throughout the Caribbean. Some of the core programs have centered around the effective use of Marine Protected Areas for marine conservation and fisheries management, the health of coral reefs and associated ecosystems, and the management of key Caribbean fishery species like the queen conch, Caribbean spiny lobster, and particularly the Nassau grouper.
