Item Identification

Title: Reef Fish Visual Census
Short Name: Reef Fish Visual Census
Status: In Work
Abstract:

The Reef Fish Visual Census (RVC) provides data on frequency of occurrence, fish lengths, abundance of reef fish and community composition taken from underwater divers.

Purpose:

The main objective of this system is to:

1) compare fish populations between reefs and other habitats, and

2) quantitatively monitor reef fish composition and relative or absolute abundance over time

Supplemental Information:

More information about the basic sampling methodology can be found in NOAATechnical Report NMFS 41, dated July 1986, titled, A Stationary Visual Census Technique for QuantitativelyAssessing Community Structure of Coral Reef Fishes by James A. Bohnsack and Scott P. Bannerot

Question:

What is ERDDAP ?

Answer:

ERDDAP acts as a middleman between you and various remote data servers. ERDDAP offers an easy-to-use, consistent way to request data: via the OPeNDAP standard. Many datasets can also be accessed via ERDDAP's Web Map Service (WMS). ERDDAP returns data in the common file format of your choice. ERDDAP offers all data as .html table, ESRI .asc and .csv, Google Earth .kml, OPeNDAP binary, .mat, .nc, ODV .txt, .csv, .tsv, .json, and .xhtml.

Question:

What are CRCP and NCRMP ?

Answer:

The NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) is a matrix program administered by NOAA's National Ocean Service (NOS) and operating across four NOAA line offices: NOS, National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS), and Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR). The program supports coral reef regions of the United States (U.S.), has an international component, and is integrated with other federal agencies, states, territories and commonwealths, and local governments. In September 2007, CRCP conducted an external program review for an assessment of the CRCP's effectiveness in achieving its mandates and to provide recommendations for improving its impact and performance. Recommendations from this review, along with the subsequent planning process (the roadmap) shaped the recent history of the CRCP. In 2011, CRCP welcomed a new program manager, John Christensen, to lead the program forward. 2012 ushered in the first activities under the new National Coral Reef Monitoring Plan (NCRMP).
