The Story About Snappers

By Peter Mous. I have always liked snappers, perhaps because they are so recognizable as a bona fide, standard-issue fish. Ask a 5-year old to draw a fish, and she will put something on paper that follows the basic outline of a snapper, swimming around in the lower half of the water column. One might

Reef Conservation Agreements – Serua

By Peter Mous. On a nautical chart, one might easily overlook the small islands of the Banda Sea. They are, however, oases of reef biodiversity, and most of these reefs are still in very good condition. The main threat to these reefs is over-fishing, either by fishers from nearby villages or by fishers from the

Reef Conservation Agreements – Dawera

By Peter Mous. During the conservation trips with Seven Seas in November 2020, April 2021, and November 2021, we visited various villages to see if the village administrations would be interested to engage in a conservation agreement with Yayasan Konservasi Alam Nusantara (YKAN), an Indonesia non-governmental organization.

Seven Seas Conservation Efforts in the Banda Sea

By Mark Heighes. Last year midway through 2020 while sitting around with Seven Seas crippled by Covid, I had an idea! What if I could use the resources available to do something good for the ocean that has given us all so much over the years? So, I found some backing from a repeat client

The Tunas of Banda

By Peter Mous. Yesterday, Bas called me. Bas works for a fish trading company, and he was wondering about the recent drop in the supply of high-quality yellowfin tuna Thunnus albacares, known in Indonesia as madidihang.
