“Worth a visit to see the work being done”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

This research centre was very informative about all the work they are doing locally. Sadly, when we were there some of the tanks were empty because of the presence of 'red tide' from the coral which kills fish and it is not safe to eat the local shellfish during this time.

“Marine Ecology Research Centre (MERC)”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

I did not stay at the resort but made an interesting day-trip to visit the Marine Eco Research Centre which is located within the resort.
Its focus is on breeding giant clams and preservation of the coral reef.
The beauty of the resort was however marred by the large amounts of rubbish in the sea.
