1 . Tanzania     Tanzania
Like Kenya, the coral reefs of Tanzania support major artisanal fisheries and coastal tourism attracted to the high biological diversity and beauty. These reefs also reduce beach erosion and serve as habitat, nursery, feeding and spawning grounds for many commercial and non-commercial species. Thus they constitute the basis of food security and incomes for many coastal people.
