Habitat characteristics as determinants of shelf edge fish communities, with emphasis on Scarid populations, off La Parguera, PR
Shelf edge reefs provide valuable habitat to a wide variety of marine organisms. Yet, because of their depth and highly sloping bottom these areas are not understood with respect to fish habitat relationships and even ...
Passive acoustics as an indicator of red hind, Epinephelus guttatus, density at a spawning aggregation
Annual spawning aggregations of red hind, Epinephelus guttatus, form at predictable times and locations, and have historically succumbed to overfishing. Monitoring the status and restoration of aggregations is essential ...
High resolution temporal patterns of black grouper, Mycteroperca bonaci, courtship bioacoustics at spawning aggregations in the greater Caribbean
Black grouper, Mycteroperca bonaci, are large protogynous hermaphrodites in the Family Epinephelidae. In the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico and South Florida they form transient seasonal spawning aggregations in the winter ...
