Sykes, H. R., 2021.   Assessment of Marine Resources: Stage 1 for World Wave Project, Qamea and Taveuni Islands, Fiji.  Prepared for the WWP, September 2021.

P07 – Selected “Where the slope changes to the reef crest around 5m deep, the area of greatest wave impact, coral cover diminishes to 10%.” (Skyes, 2021).  Works restricted to <2 m deep.

Coral classified from the reef top to 20 m deep:

  • Reef top usually exposed at low tide
  • 3 m deep = 10% live coral;
  • 10 m deep = rock and 50% live hard coral
  • 20 m deep = sand and rubble.
