Healthy Reefs, Healthy Fish

Healthy Coral Reefs and Healthy Fisheries Keep Each Other Productive

Red grouper, mutton snapper and other reef fish use a variety of habitats throughout their life cycle. Coral reefs provide food, nursery grounds and shelter. Large numbers of schooling fish create nutrient hotspots and sites for coral settlement, increasing coral growth rate. This symbiotic relationship increases species richness and abundance on the reef.
