The Precheur Marine Reserve inaugurated by Prince Albert II

Fort de France, Martinique

HSH Prince Albert hosted a gathering in Fort de France to share the work of Monaco Explorations, and specifically the most recent topic, Sargassum, to a crowd of nearly 150 people. Earlier in the day, His Serene Highness was present for the inauguration of the Prêcheur marine reserve.

“Today we have enough perspective to know that marine reserves and protected areas are the best ways to regulate overfishing and protect the ecosystems. One benefit of creating these reserves is that they provide generations of fishermen the ability to continue their livelihood for years to come. Marine protected areas help to protect the marine environments and biodiversity by bringing man and the sea together responsibly.” said Prince Albert II.

Prs Thomas Changeux and Sandrine Ruitton (MIO Aix-Marseille University) shared their first results after 3 weeks of work with Monaco Explorations.
