Marine Conservation is all about collaboration because collaboration leads to results. This episode presents a recent case where adaptive management, collaboration among government, research institutes, and citizen science groups show great results for a Nassau Grouper aggregation in Little Cayman.
Find out how an aggregation site for Grouper spawning tripled in size within 10 years.

Nassau Grouper populations have been dwindling since the 1950s and the fisheries collapsed in 1990. Since then, marine scientists and conservationists have been working tirelessly to try and revive the fishery.
Island nations throughout the Caribbean have been monitoring their local populations to find ways to help revive the fishery along each island.
The Cayman Islands have recently shown a successful case with positive growth in local populations using a collaborative model that included government, non-profit organizations and academia.
A written article suggested by @WhyOceansMatter (Matt Teibohl) and written by Ben Shouse from the Lenfest Ocean Fund talked about the collaborative process that helped make this project successful.
