The Dauin Municipality Long-Term Reef Monitoring Project has been designed with the purpose of tracking fine-scale changes in the overall reef community over time. Using the newest technology like the Diver Operated Stereo Video System for fish density, mapping and measurements and 3D Reef Modelling we are front runners in Marine Research in the Philippines.
