Cost-effective Fish Mapping Technique Developed to Assist Coral Reef Resource Managers

National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) researchers have developed a novel, cost-effective and multi-scale statistical technique for predicting fish species richness across coral reef ecosystems to assist resource managers in identifying species diversity hotspots in surveyed areas and to predict such hotspots in unsurveyed areas. The technique spatially integrates a wide range of NOAA data sets including field survey data, NCCOS
