SocMon Grenada was part of a regional project Socio-economic monitoring by Caribbean Fishery Authorities (Fisheries SocMon) funded by a US Coral Reef Conservation grant for and jointly implemented by the Center for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES) of the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, and the Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism (CRFM). Grenada opted to participate in this project because of the perception at the Fisheries Division that certain east coast communities were impacting on coastal ecosystems in a manner that was likely to negatively affect the quality of life of those communities over time. The survey site, which is located along the east coast of mainland Grenada encompasses nine villages and one town. Within the site there are a variety of coastal resources which impact and are impacted upon mostly by adjoining communities. These resources include the sea itself, coral reefs, seagrass communities, beaches, mangroves wetlands and typical coastal vegetation. Human utilization include s sand mining, charcoal production, fishing and agriculture (both plant and animal husbandry)"
