Interested in studying seagrass & fisheries in Zanzibar for your MSc this Autumn 2019?

We’ve been researching how seagrass assemblages influence smallscale fisheries in the Indo-Pacific Ocean and find that seagrass traits (diversity & structure) are important for fish productivity. Next, we want to know if small-scale fishers are aware of this and if they choose to fish in certain places because of certain seagrass traits.

We’re looking for two students to conduct ecological surveys of seagrass (Study 1) and interview’s with fishers (Study 2) in Zanzibar this Autumn 2019. Fieldwork is expected to take 2 months.
