Julius Okondo

Okondo is an officer who has worked at KMFRI marine and coastal section for over 25 years. His area of research has mainly been on benthic ecology within the 3 critical habitats of Mangroves, seagrass and coral reefs. Key studies have been assessment of faunal diversity between degraded and relatively less degraded ones. The other one has been the effect of human activity like bait fishery on benthic community structure and the environment.
