Marine Megafauna Monitoring Guna Yala, Panamá

MarAlliance has been working with communities in the Guna Yala Comarca to control invasive lionfish populations and assess the status of marine megafauna around the archipelago. Using Baited Remote Underwater Videos and underwater visual census our team of Guna fishers, captains, students, and biologists lead by MarAlliance staff have collected the first data on the relative abundance, diversity, and distribution of sharks, rays, and marine turtles in the Comarca.
