Anthony’s research interests stem from a passion in all and that, which belongs to and is associated with ocean sciences. As an already experienced Advanced Open Water Diver and Scientific Diver (16 years diving experience) in varied and diverse marine environments, Anthony uses his skills not only for research purposes but also to document Kenya’s underwater sea life using a variety of visual census tools and techniques. He has been able to incorporate his passions and vast knowledge of the oceans into a career in ocean sciences and is looking at incorporating and expanding aspects of underwater photography and videography into is scientific work.
Currently, he is still involved on oceanic research investigating new and adaptive culture species and techniques for enhanced marine fish production and assessing critical habitats for marine coral reef ecosystems. Already, he played key instrumental roles in the development of two NRF-funded projects: (1) Design and Optimization of Cage Culture in Kwale and Kilifi Counties (DOCS) and (2) the Establishment of Kenya’s first Marine Hatchery. In addition, he has also been involved in coral culture and reef studies in Kenya’s south coast together with other stakeholders.
