[CCRES] Site report: Selayar, Indonesia
Selayar is as an archipelago of 130 islands (26 are inhabited), so the services provided by coastal ecosystems are vital for the food security, livelihoods and welfare of people in local communities. The waters of Selayar are a meeting place for currents from the Indian and Pacific oceans and border deep ocean waters. This geography gives rise to rich and fertile pelagic fishery resources with high economic value, such as tuna and skipjack, and fish exports to Bali and Hong Kong. Selayar was chosen as the pilot site for the Capturing Coral Reef and Related Ecosystem Services (CCRES) project in Indonesia, following consultation with national, provincial and local stakeholders, in August 2014. Published in July 2018.
