Rapid Assessment of the Coralline and Ichthyological Communities of the Coral Reefs of the Primeiras and Segundas Archipelago (Nampula and Zambezia Provinces)




The archipelago of the Primeiras and Segundas, in the North of Mozambique, comprises an almost continuous chain of coralline islands that are fringed by reefs. A rapid and preliminary study employing visual techniques for both ichthyological and benthonic communities was conducted in the shallow (<15m) reefs of the islands’ eastern coast. A total of 194 fish species representing 42 families was identified. Cumulatively, 43 genera of stony coral and 15 genera of soft coral were also identified in the area.
