  • Description:
    The Environment, Inc. in partnership with Ngarameliwei, Inc. has completed the implementation of the Rabbitfish Project. The following has been accomplished: Monthly monitoring of two sites at least 2 x a month has been ongoing since September 2005. In February through May, the group monitored for 5 days. Two “in-water” GPS units have been in use since January 2006. Data has been analyzed and mapped using this technique. 15 Ngarameliwei Members have been trained on fish calibration, and operation of the “in-water” GPS and data collection. A data acquisition and management system is developed. Training on the laptop is ongoing. Unfortunately this month, we had a power surge and the mother board was destroyed. We are in the process of repairing it. Sea grass baseline data was collected. Four community meetings have been conducted for Ngetkib, Ngeruluobel, Ngerusar and Airai. A member of Ngarameliwei attended the 3rd Coastal Zone Asia Pacific Conference in Batam, Indonesia. A draft Rabbitfish Action plan has been completed. A meeting was held with the Governor of Airai and the Airai Legislature to present findings and Draft Action Plan.
