The Madagascar National Oceanographic Data Centre is attached to the University of Toliara. Some of the research achievements of the Oceanographic Data Centre are: a project for the protection of coastal reefs in south-western Madagascar; a marine biodiversity assessment in the same coastal area; a socio-economic investigation of traditional fishing practices; and bio-ecological surveys to facilitate the development of a sustainable marine park in the Masoala area far away on Madagascar’s northeast coast.
This dataset has been collected in Toliara Bay, and includes bony fish, cartilagenous fish, mammals and reptiles. It currently consists of 721 records of 49 families.
