Current Research

I’m currently funded to study artisanal fish catches in John Obey, Sierra Leone with Tribewanted┬áby the PADI Foundation.

I’m happy to report that my research in Sierra Leone from Nov 18 – Dec 9 was a success! We photographed somewhere between 50-70 fish species, counted over 5,000 fish and measured over 1,800! A big thanks to everyone who helped on the project!

I’ll post the results of this study once they are complete. In the meantime, please see my blogs on how to learn more and get involved in Sierra Leone and my blogs written in Salone during the research.

If you are interested in taking groups to Sierra Leone to study or conduct research, check out this promo I made for Tribewanted.
