A series of short symposia centred on the theme of Coral Reef Enforcement and Investigation were conducted at the 3rd International Tropical Marine Ecosystem Symposium (ITMEMS3) to assist in the development of internationally accepted protocols and standards for constructing investigations of short-term human impacts on coral reef resources. The resulting workshop reports and recommendations can be viewed/downloaded as pdf documents (≈ 40 KB each):
