Observation, identification and reporting of marine species in the Arabian Peninsula


The Arabian Marine Species Observer (AMSO) programme trains observers to be able to competently identify, report and monitor the presence of key marine species within offshore and coastal areas of the Arabian Peninsula, to ensure their safety as part of minimising project derived ecological impacts. The Course is intended as a CPD course for professionals working in the maritime industry within the Arabian Peninsula, but can be undertaken by just about anyone.

It was an honour to be trained and taught the Arabian Marine Species Observers course, thank you for the unforgettable experience
