MPA Reef Fish Survey Videos

Metadata Updated: April 1, 2024

The Southeast Fisheries Science Center Mississippi Laboratories conducts standardized fisheries independent resource surveys in the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and U.S. Caribbean to provide abundance and distribution information to support regional and international stock assessments. Surveys of Marine Protected Areas have been conducted periodically in the Gulf of Mexico since 1978. Information has been provided on reef fish abundance and distribution, life history, bathymetry mapping and habitat characterization.

Lineage To provide photographs to document resource survey operations in the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and U.S. Caribbean Sea. Step 1. Reef fish abundance and size data are generated from videos. Step 2. An index of abundance for each species is determined as the MaxNo, the maximum number of a taxon that is in the field of view in a single video frame. Fish lengths are determined using laser reference points or stereo video processing. Step 3. Fish are captured using either fish traps, bottom longlines or bandit gear.
