The ReefBase Pacific project is Component 2D of the Coral Reef InitiativeS for the Pacific (CRISP), executed by The WorldFish Center and funded by the Agence Française de Développement and the United Nations Foundation.

ReefBase Pacific is the first regional focus of the global ReefBase project and provides a unique collection of information for the Pacific region. The ReefBase Pacific project aims to improve quality and accessibility of data and information on reef-associated livelihoods, fisheries and biodiversity. The project has generated internet, DVD and printed formats of the information to facilitate distribution and accessibility across a wide range of stakeholders and users.

The WorldFish Center is an international non-profit research organization dedicated to reducing poverty and hunger by improving fisheries and aquaculture. The WorldFish Center is the host for ReefBase, the world’s leading information system on coral reefs.

ReefBase products provides scientists, managers and students with quality data and information relevant to the monitoring, conservation and management of these vital natural resources.

International Year of the Reef 2008

The International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI) designated 2008 as the International Year of the Reef. This is a worldwide campaign to raise awareness about the value and importance of coral reefs and threats to their sustainability and to motivate people to take action to protect them.

Reefbase Pacific has contributed throughout 2008 to raising awareness about the status and role of coral reefs in sustaining fisheries, livelihoods and biodiversity in the Pacific. Information made available through the ReefBase Pacific and Global database will continue to support reef management, monitoring and education around the world in support of the longer-term attainment of International Year of the Reef goals.
