From 17-25 November 2018, researchers of Wageningen Marine Research and other institutes will work together on reef monitoring on the largest coral reef of The Netherlands near Saba. The Saba Bank is an extremely rich area with very high biodiversity of fish, coral, algae and sponges.
During the expedition, our researchers will keep a blog to update you about their experiences and findings:
The Saba Bank
The Saba Bank is the largest undersea atoll in the Caribbean and one of the largest in the world (2000km). Along the edge of the bank there are extensive coral reefs. The corals provide the threedimensional structure where all the other plants and animals live. They are the building blocks of the Bank.
