Western Indian Ocean Regional Initiative
WIO-RISE aims to build scientific and technological capacity and to catalyze excellence in research and training in marine science in the Western Indian Ocean (WIO) region for sustainable development, utilization and protection of coastal and marine resources and environment. It supports post-graduate students from the region; students are welcome from the WIO countries: Comoros, Réunion (France), Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, Seychelles, Somalia, South Africa and Tanzania.
The network’s priority areas of research and training are:
- marine chemistry (marine natural products and biochemistry)
- physical oceanography
- climate and atmospheric sciences
- applied marine sciences
Updates on Recent WIO-RISE Activities
Johnson Grayson participated in an international workshop on the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) with a theme “Connecting Science to Management” and presented a paper entitled “Growth, Mortality and Reproductive Biology of Narrow-bared Spanish mackerel Scomberomorus commerson (Lecepede, 1800) Along the Northern Tanzanian Coastal Waters”.
The workshop took place in Phuket, Thailand, from 29th June to 2nd July 2014.
