The Marine Reserves team presented at the Western Society of Naturalists Conference this month on habitat associations of nearshore rockfish, the living benthos, and evaluating sizing error in stereo cameras. Click the links to see the posters.

landerOur team published an ODFW informational report this month on biogenic structure and video review. Read the report.


The Marine Reserves team participated in a West Coast wide SCUBA workshop this month. During this meeting we met with other programs to discuss data compatibility and the value of long-term SCUBA monitoring data.

Our collaborators at OSU just published findings on how rockfish siblings travel settle together in the Proceedings of the Nationals Academy of fishSciences. These data were collected during our juvenile fish recruitment surveys (SMURFs) at Otter Rock and Redfish Rocks. Read their paper or learn more about our SMURF project.
