Gravity of Human Impacts Mediates Coral Reef Conservation Gains

An international study of nearly 1,800 tropical coral reefs around the world found that marine reserves near heavily populated areas struggle to do their job—but are a vast improvement over having no protection at all.

A Comparison of Sampling Methods for Larvae of Medium and Large Epipelagic Fish Species During Spring SEAMAP Ichthyoplankton Surveys in the Gulf of Mexico

Results from this comparison of sampling methods show sampling effectiveness strongly depends on the depth fished by the net and that the S‐10 net was more effective than standard SEAMAP bongo and neuston nets.

Decadal-Scale Patterns and Changes in Larval Fish Assemblages Across the Northern Gulf of Mexico

Multivariate statistical techniques were used to characterize temporal and spatial changes in abundances of the larvae of 20 common fish families from the early 1980s through to the late 2000s. The larvae of some pelagic and mesopelagic families showed
