Commercial fish counts in fixed points made by video tracking
CREOCEAN, a consulting firm specialized in marine environment and oceanography, conducted the ecological monitoring of Rangiroa's regulated fishing zone, created by Arrêté in February 2015.
This area covers 117.34 km²; it is far from the village. It is a fishing area where the fishing effort is very limited, including 2 sub-areas where fishing is allowed provided that the fishery products are consumed locally. The main protection is at the blue lagoon level, area very frequented by tourist providers.
