Over the years CRRF and its staff have produced a wide variety of “technical reports.” They do not meet the requirements for submission to a peer-reviewed scientific journal for publication, but provide considerable scientific information which is not available elsewhere. The nature of many projects is long term and in such efforts there is often no final end point. These documents are often prepared to serve as preliminary reports on some aspect of Palau’s oceans and reviewed by in-house staff or collaborators. In some cases these reports are unlikely to appear as a peer reviewed paper in the near future due to their preliminary, and often, descriptive nature.
