Grouper (Epinephelus striatus) and fish populations of Little Cayman and

This is a highly selective program, to ensure the best training possible
the research internship only a maximum of 12 students will be able to
participate at a time. Students will collect data to be used on a large
on-going study of the coral reef ecosystems of Little Cayman.

The goals of this program are:
(1) To increase the interest of future young scientists in coral reefs and
enhance their training,
(2) To learn more about coral reef communities and divulge this knowledge by
means of scientific publications, and
(3) To provide data that will assist in protecting these ecosystems.
