Species of Concern: Atuhong & Tangison

CRM has recieved a "Proactive Species Conservation Grant" through NOAA's Office of Protected Resouces to study the distribution of Chelinus undulatus (Tanguisson) and Bolbometopon muricatum (Atuhong) around Saipan, Tinian, Rota and Agijuan.  We hope the information collected will help build our understanding of population numbers and habitat use needed for development of management plans for both species.
