        abstract:  This accession has been superseded by NCEI Accession 0206670. Please use and refer to NCEI Accession 0206670 instead of this accession.
        purpose:  (1) to spatially characterize and monitor the distribution, abundance, and size of both reef fishes and macro-invertebrates (conch, lobster and sea urchin), (2) to relate this information to in situ data collected on associated benthic composition parameters, (3) to use this information to establish the knowledge base necessary for enacting management decisions in a spatial setting, and (4) to establish the efficacy of those management decisions.
