Sea Academy 2020-2023

The Sea Academy project should start in 2020 and last 3 years. It will bring real solutions, involving local populations of all ages to reverse the trend of over-exploitation of resources. It will also go to revive the economic activity of Shark fin Bay on the island of Palawan in the Philippines. With this project, the research will also be able to make a big step forward in the analysis of self-sustaining and sustainable fisheries for isolated populations.

The Sea Academy project has for main objectives :

  1. Create 3 community-based Marine Protected Areas  with the 3 neighbouring villages (Depla, Silanga, Sandoval). 
  2. Restore coral reefs with artificial reefs (Sulu-Reef-Prothesis).
  3. Increase the fish populations with reintroduction of fish juveniles. 
  4. Educate the local young generation about its marine environment. 
  5. Get better knowledge of marine ecosystems by collaborating with scientists.
