ResourceInferring trends in a small-scale, data-limited tropical fishery based on fishery-independent data
"Size-based indicators have emerged as useful tools to analyze the status of fisheries which lack fishery dependent data over long time series, such as many coral reef fisheries. In this study, we calculate a number of size-based indicators for the Haitia...
ResourceObservations on fisheries activities at Navassa Island
Unmanaged and unquantified artisanal fishing is ongoing at Navassa Island in the Caribbean. Concern has been expressed regarding the possible impact of these fishing activities on reef resources, and no quantitative catch or effort data are available. How...
