Introduction

Provided in the ReefBase Pacific Country Profiles are a collection of information and data relating to reefs, fisheries and livelihoods in the Pacific.

Country Data
Socioeconomic and geographic country data provided here have a variety of sources. The details of the data and data sources are provided in the right hand column and can be viewed by clicking 'Ref'.

Maps
A map of islands and reefs is provided within Country Profiles as a downloadable image file. Reef, island and many other data can be viewed through the Geographic Information System 'Pacific ReefGIS'.

To provide the best possible representation of coral reef locations and extent, the images presented here use a combination of several sets of available data; coral reef lines and polygons (where available) illustrate the location and extent of reefs respectively, and the Millennium Coral Reef Mapping project has provided information (for most Pacific Island Countries and Territories) on the area and depth of coral reefs presented here, in three depth zones; shallow, mixed reef, deep reef.

Photos
Provided here is a selection of photos which, where possible, illustrate reef fisheries, reef-related livelihoods and reef biodiversity in each Pacific Island Country or Territory. This website also contains a large collection of photos and other images which can be searched and accessed through the Database.
