    Last month I attended the WIOMSA conference (Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association) in Mombasa, Kenya to present some of my research. We managed to get time to go for a snorkel in the nearby marine park/reserve and wow it was incredible.

    So here are some photos as I know everyone loves photos on MASA...

    Hi Sean, I'm busy doing my Masters in Marine Biology. It has nothing to do with corals :( but I'm part of a ecosystem study off the KwaZulu Natal coast.

    Chaetodon trifasciatus.
    Generally not suitable for reef tanks, feeds almost exclusively on sps
