Reef Support B.V.

Reef Support accelerates the transition of data-to-decisions to scale up ocean-based protection.


Reef Support develops and deploys field-ready software to streamline MPA monitoring operations and environmental impact assessments in order to facilitate better management of coastal areas and marine ecosystems, using Geographic Information System (GIS) and artificial intelligence to reduce time and costs in the monitoring and processing of ocean data. Our tools also extend to coastal businesses that rely on healthy reef systems: aquaculture and fisheries, beaches (tourism), maritime and coastal development sectors.
