NMFS Reef Survey Forms

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

The Reef Environmental Survey Project (REEF) mission to educate and enlist divers in the conservation of marine habitats is accomplished primarily through its Fish Survey Project. The Project was developed in 1990 with support from The Nature Conservancy and guidance by the Southeast Fisheries Science Center of the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). The REEF Fish Survey Project allows volunteer SCUBA divers and snorkelers to collect and report information on marine fish populations. These data are used by a variety of resource agencies and researchers. Forms date from roughly 1990-2010, and were scanned into TIF format through the Climate Database Modernization Program.
