- Title: Mapping and Modeling Fishing Pressure and Fish Standing Stocks
- Principal Investigators: Alastair Harborne
- Funding Source: The Nature Conservancy
- Timeline: Ongoing
Institute researchers are modeling and mapping fishing pressure and standing stocks in the Florida Keys to understand the factors driving these variables and to assist conservation planning. We are also using models to examine how changing sea surface temperatures associated with global climate change will affect the size and distribution of reef fishes, and how this will affect catches and management initiatives.
