Mapping biodiversity

- One of our current efforts is to try to engage the fishermen, help them to learn what is known about these different species from other parts of the world; e.g. the migration patterns, the life history, the reproductive potential. Conversely, the fishermen of Aceh also have a tremendous amount of knowledge about the marine life that live in the area. For example, they know where the shark nurseries are, the turtle nesting beaches, and the spawning grounds for a number of different species.
