Ryukyu Shimpo – OIST sets up equipment to observe coral reefs in the sea off Motobu Peninsula

Tetsuji Mitarai, associate professor at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST), and others, held a press conference at Okinawa Ocean Expo Park in Motobu in northern Okinawa on September 6. They said that researchers have set up equipment to constantly observe coral reef creatures and the environment in the sea off Bise in Motobu and have started fixed-point observation.

According to Mitarai, it is the first time a Japanese institution has set up equipment to observe the sea in real time. Few institutions in the world have managed this. The researchers expect to find new causes of coral bleaching.
