Mollusc assessment in the waters of Mauritius: September – October 2017

In its effort to assess the marine living resources in the waters of Mauritius for the sustainable development of the Ocean economy, the Mauritius Oceanography Institute (MOI) is honoured to have Dr Matthew Kosnik as the visiting molluscan expert from Macquarie University (Australia). Dr Kosnik, along with MOI staff, is currently participating in numerous field surveys at different sites across the island and will be facilitating the upcoming regional training workshop on taxonomical identification of marine molluscs. This event will be hosted at the MOI from the 16-20th October 2017 in collaboration with the Indian Ocean Commission and is expected to involve 25 regional and local participants.
