This report presents plans for the first phase of this research project. The stated objectives are: "1) A preliminary characterization and inventory of the benthic habitat and fish communities in the xtreme depths of the Tortugas South reserve component. 2) Characterize spawning aggregations and initiate development of a probabilistic model of the fate of snapper larvae, focusing on Riley's Hump. 3) Begin comparative characterization of shallow and deepwater seagrass communities and their contribution to fishery resources in disturbed (outside the reserve) and undisturbed sites (inside the reserve). 4) Determine the accuracy of existing habitat delineations within the proposed ecological reserve as a function of depth disturbed and undisturbed sites. 5) Examine how high resolution ecological data of a given habitat type can be scaled to the larger spatial context of the proposed ecological reserve."
