Saba Bank onderzoeksprogramma 2011-2016

Since 2010, the Saba Bank falls under the jurisdiction of The Netherlands. Spanning an area of 2000km2, the Saba Bank houses the largest coral reef in the Caribbean Netherlands with a great diversity of species. The past 5 years the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs has funded research on the biodiversity, health and ecological functioning of the bank. The Saba Bank Symposium on 8 December 2016 will provide an overview of results and future directions for policy and research.
