Four days (2014-11-10 to 11-13) were spent surveying and sampling the reefs of Utupua, a real highlight of the whole country. Unfortunately, I only have the low-resolution images for the first day due to a file archiving issue created by Aperture.
SoUt33 (2014-11-10) night dive site. I don’t know if I really didn’t take pictures during the day or if they were lost/deleted in my latest Aperture formatting crisis, as I could only find three images. At this site Pocillopora spp. colonies were tagged and sampled in both day and night.
SoUt34 (2014-11-10) did not dive on account of setting up for night dive (SoUt33)
SoUt38 (2013-11-12) neither P. acuta/P. damicornis nor Seriatopora spp. were present at this site.
SoUt41 (2014-11-13). Did not dive at final Utupua site (SoUt42).
