With the data gathered from the water quality sensors, we can get a better idea of what is in our waters that is natural and what is foreign and how these things affect these areas. These additional data helps support the decision making of the community. Knowing more of the factors that affect the community conservation areas and living spaces helps to better understand current impacts. This leads to better resource management, by flagging any potential future problems or challenges and addressing these directly to get the desired results, efficiently. The science confirms and supports the traditional knowledge of ridge-to-reef resource management as practiced for eons on our island.
