Between April 14 and May 31, 2016, NOAA Ship Oscar Elton Sette will be the platform for a research project aimed at gathering data to improve assessments of reef fish populations in American Samoa and to assess the aftermath of the 2016 coral bleaching events at Rose Atoll and Jarvis Island. Led by the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center's (PIFSC) Coral Reef Ecosystem Program, this multi-agency effort involves participants from the American Samoa Department of Marine and Wildlife Resources, Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
