Expanding our Knowledge of the Black Land Crab
Black crabs are an important source of sustenance and income throughout The Bahamas. Despite this, there is a critical lack of research into their fundamental ecology. By investigating the threats they face, we can work to ensure land crab will always be on the menu.
Exuma Sound Ecosystem Research Project
Some of the most understudied marine habitats in The Bahamas are offshore and deep. CEI’s Exuma Sound Ecosystem Research Project studies these habitats, the incredible creatures that live there, and how we are affecting their abundance and behaviors through fishing and development. To learn about our work on pelagic sharks, marine mammals, sargassum communities, and more, check out this introduction to our research program.
Fibropapillomatosis Disease in Green Sea Turtles
Fibropapillomatosis disease (FP) is a debilitating disease that afflicts sea turtles in the wild. In-water studies have monitored green sea turtles across the Bahamian archipelago since 1969, providing an opportunity to assess the spatial and temporal occurrence of FP. Here we describe the incidence and distribution of this disease across 15 islands in the Bahamian archipelago over the last 35 years and discuss potential drivers of this disease and look to the future.
Fish Aggregation Devices (FADS) as Conservation Tools
Fish aggregation devices (FADs) are a common fishing tool used in commercial and recreational fisheries all across the world. Understanding how they work, what species use them, and how to regulate their use in The Bahamas is an important aspect of fisheries management and conservation.
