CRCP Effects of trap fishing on coral reefs and associated habitats in the Florida Keys

Metadata Updated: April 1, 2024

We conducted surveys of trap distributions, targeted habitats, trap damage to coral reefs and associated habitats, and spatial/temporal distribution of catches. Field work was conducted with local partners: FWCC in Florida Keys (this data set); UPR-M in Puerto Rico; and USVI Fish and Wildlife Div. in US Virgin Islands.
