Horseshoe Crab Population and Distribution Survey


Date : 17 Mar 2012
Time : 11:00am - 2:00pm
Location : various locations

The island-wide Horseshoe Crab (HSC) Population and Distribution Survey will start at 11am at various parts of Singapore. This is a follow-up to the last survey held in March 2009. It involves a search for the 2 species of HSCs found in Singapore and conducting a questionnaire survey of recreational and artisanal fishermen at designated potential HSC habitats. An exhaustive transect search will also be conducted at the Mandai mudflats to determine HSC population density. This survey will provide useful information on the population and distribution interval changes of both species of HSCs found in Singapore.

Please register your interest for the survey by clicking on the 'ATTEND' button below and indicate your preferred survey area in Singapore (northeast, southeast, northwest or southwest) under 'Special Request'. Open to the public.
