TARA recently arrived in the Samoan islands where sampling protocols continue aboard the schooner. Among the 3 coral species targeted by scientists, Portites lobata is of particular interest to Guillaume Iwankow from the CRIOBE in Perpignan. We embarked with him to sample this species via a particular protocol.
