A very long driftnet was laid on the seagrass meadows of Pulau Semakau today.
The net was discovered as I did seagrass monitoring there with TeamSeagrass. The net ended at the last of our Site 1, and Siti saw it also on her Site 2 about 300m away.
Project Driftnet. And we just did a net haul here last month and the month before!
I had a quick look to check for coral bleaching. The corals I saw today seemed alright. None were bleaching.
More about the trip on the TeamSeagrass blog.
