An important area of research at the Marine Lab is the conservation biology of coral-reef organisms, particualarly fishes. In this regard faculty investigate reproductive behavior, mating systems, recruitment patterns and life-history strategies. Studies of the patterns of, and processess maintaining, their diversity are also important. Of special interest is the study of fish spawning aggregations and aggregation sites, as well as problems associated with the live trade in reef fishes (both food and ornamental species). The outcomes of this work are applied towards the design and evaluation of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), and the development of conservation and fisheries management strategies.
