"Survey information presented about National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP). The survey wasoriginally designed to standardize reef and coral monitoring across all US coral reef jurisdictions. Prior to NCRMP monitoring in Puerto Rico was established to first characterize the benthic habitats, fish and invertebrate communities in the La Parguera Natural Reserve. Subsequent monitoring was to examine spatial patterns and associated habitat affinities between fish communities, benthic habitats, and benthic communities."
