Abstract:
Benthic and habitat data collected on the 2004 cruise to Navassa Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Parameters include benthic cover, coral disease prevalence, location of fishing gear, coral density and sizes. Data were collected in situ by divers, some using digital cameras. Fishing gear locations were determined visually from boat transects.
