Vanessa Mills from ABC Radio Kimberley conducted an interview with WAMSI CEO Steve Blake and Cygnet Bay Pearls / KMRS General Manager James Brown to disucss the expanding prospects for marine research in the Kimberley opening up through the establishment of KMRS.
Blake: "The historical lack of information from a western perspective, and the remoteness of the region will be the biggest challenge to marine research. Having a land-based facility which is easy to access from Broome will allow scientists to do far more work... The KMRS facility will allow more students to perform research in the region for less cost."
The interview was aired live on ABC Radio on Wednesday, May 27 at 10:20am.
