Coral Ecosystem Connectivity from Pulley Ridge to the Florida Keys: Modeled 3D Connectivity Matrices from Pulley Ridge to the Florida Keys for Coral and Fish Species (NCEI Accession 0191355)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Three-dimensional (3D) connectivity matrices between Pulley Ridge and the Florida Keys using the Connectivity Modeling System (CMS) for bicolor damselfish (Stegastes partitus), red lionfish (Pterois volitans), great star coral (Montastraea cavernosa), mustard hill coral (Porites astreoides), and red grouper (Epinephelus morio). For all species, the probability of connectivity between reefs from 2012-2014 is modeled; for S. partitus, daily probability of export from 2004-2008 is also provided.

Purpose This dataset shows estimated 3D connectivity patterns between Pulley Ridge and the Florida Keys for coral and fish species. This knowledge can aid the management of these species and areas, by showing sinks and sources of larvae and planulae. The project “Coral Ecosystem Connectivity: From Pulley Ridge to Florida Keys” is focused on investigating the role that the relatively healthy deep, light-dependent mesophotic coral ecosystems of Pulley Ridge may play in replenishing key fish species, such as grouper, and other organisms in the downstream reefs of the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas. This interdisciplinary study is determining connectivity of specific reef species between Pulley Ridge and the Florida Keys, and describing the structure and determining the value of Pulley Ridge’s mesophotic coral ecosystems. Because of the well-documented decline of Florida’s reefs, it is important to identify, protect, and manage sources of larvae that can help sustain Florida’s reef ecosystems and the tourism economy that depends on it. The data in this accession were funded by the NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) under award NA11NOS4780045 to the Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies (CIMAS) at the University of Miami, and by the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research under awards NA09OAR4320073 and NA14OAR4320260 to the Cooperative Institute for Ocean Exploration, Research and Technology (CIOERT) at Florida Atlantic University – Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute.
