Fish survey data from Uva Island reef, Panama collected between 1980 and 2010 (NCEI Accession 0157563)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This data contains an eastern Pacific fish assemblage associated with a 2.5 hectare coral reef located within the boundaries of Coiba National Park, Panama. From 1980 to 2010, consistent, quantitative coral reef and fish survey monitoring methods have been applied at Uva Island reef, which lies in area that has received virtually no fishing pressure or watershed development over the past 80 years.
