The aim is to establish a platform for joining forces in research & education in the field of “Marine Biodiversity Research”.
To put these plans into action the Tri-National EMBRIO Field Convention “Coral Reefs in Transition” was conducted at Pulau Tunda, Banten Bay and at the Kepulauan Seribu, Jakarta Bay, by Indonesian marine researchers together with coral reef experts from New Zealand and Germany.
