Type Period Note:
This report describes progess made on five tasks: 1) Conducting a preliminary investigation into the technical and logistic difficulties in preparing a numerically accurate and spatially precise characterization and inventory of the fish and benthic communities of the Tortugas South reserve component; 2) Characterizing the mutton snapper spawning aggregations on Riley's Hump; 3) Characterizing the deepwater seagrass and other non-reef benthic communities and its contribution to sustaining fishery resources in the proposed ecological reserve and comparing this contribution to a disturbed site; 4) Initiating a comparative analysis of the delineation of habitats based on depth; and 5) Examine how well ecological data collected at high resolution can be scaled to the larger spatial extent of a given habitat type within the proposed ecological reserve.
