Coral reef on Ile de la Passe on Peros Banhos atoll in the British Indian Ocean Territory MPA. Modelled as part of the Bertarelli Programme in Marine Science.
This is one of a number of reef sites within the Marine Protected Area, which are surveyed on an annual basis to investigate changes following the 2016 bleaching event. The habitat at this reef has been found to be still highly rugose despite widespread coral mortality, and as such remains a usable niche for fish.
