Abstract

Renato Morais developed a method to quantify the productivity of coral reef fishes. He used this method to evaluate the effects of fishing and climate change on the amount of fish that coral reefs produce. This method can be used to improve assessments of critically important, but increasingly threatened, tropical fisheries that sustain millions of people.
