Water quality is important to monitor for the health of all marine life and our coral reefs. We take samples from around the island at different depths and test them back on land.
Using our quality testing kit, we test for Nitrate, Phosphate and dissolved O2 levels, as well as measuring pH levels, salinity and turbidity.
All this information is entered into a database can be passed on to governments to implement long term or emergency measures.

* It helps unite our local community with a goal to keep our oceans healthy.
* Data may help future decisions by governments.
