Abstract:
The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) is comprised of 607 islands found within four states: Kosrae, Pohnpei, Chuuk and Yap. The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) is comprised of 607 islands found within four states: Kosrae, Pohnpei, Chuuk and Yap. The four states of the FSM are at different stages of development and implementation of coral reef monitoring programs. As a result, the FSM developed and implemented a standardized monitoring program across the country. Because coral ecosystem monitoring is at such an early stage, all monitoring results are grouped by state instead of by the standard data categories of water quality, benthic habitats and associated biological communities. The four-awarded organizations have completed all activities stated in their proposals to the Micronesia Conservation Trust (MCT). All awards have been expended and implementing organizations have analyzed their data to the best of their abilities and submitted their final reports.The four projects are: 1. Coral and fish monitoring in the State of Kosrae, FSM. 2. Coral and fish monitoring in the State of Pohnpei, FSM. 3. Coral and fish monitoring in the State of Chuuk, FSM. 4. Coral and fish monitoring in the State of Yap, FSM.
