Abstract
    This report aims to give an overview of the results obtained over the last year in the frame of the VLIR project and the cooperating EEC project “Dynamics and Assessment of Kenyan Mangrove Ecosystems” (CEC Project nr TS 2-0240-C (GDF)). The mangrove ecosystem in Gazi has been intensively investigated. The researchers of the different subprojects are most often working in a coordinated way. A comprehensive set of data is now available and presented in this report. The Kenyan coastal area has especially been investigated for species distribution and coverage of marine algae and corals at different sites along the Kenyan coast. Most recently a pollution project, supported by UNEP, in collaboration with Kenyan Government chemist, was started. The first information on pollution sources and pollution loads have been obtained. The first data on monitoring of the pollution levels and their environmental impact, for the area around Mombasa are presented in this report. The aquaculture department is still small, nevertheless preliminary research is being done with success on fish culturing. The Oyster Commercial cultivation has started, is it on a very small scale. All information is now available to start real oyster farming. The Kenya-Belgium project was furthermore involved in the organization of a symposium: “Status and future of Large Marine Ecosystems”, to be held in between 2nd and 7th August 1992.
