Report on the trapping and mark and recapture of reef fish in the CAC Marine Reserve and the visual census of the fish populations on the CAC protected reef area and an adjacent area of reef subjected to local fishing.

Abstract

Information is presented that was collected in 1989 on the species composition and abundance of coral reef fish within a marine reserve off Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands, and an adjacent area of fished fringing reef which possesses similar habitat characteristics but is subjected to a varying level of fishing pressure by local artisanal and subsistence fishermen. Study sites, trapping and tagging and the visual census are outlined.
