Arias-Gonzales, J.E. and Galzin, R. and Nielson, J. and Mahon, R. and Aiken, K. (1994) Reference area as a factor affecting potential yield estimates of coral reef fishes. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 17(4), pp. 37-40.
A compilation of 48 estimates of Caribbean and Pacific coral reef fish catches, ranging from 0.1 to 23.7 t km super(-2) year super(-1), obtained from coral reef areas ranging from 0.1 to nearly 4-10 super(5) km super(2), are used to show that observed catches, and hence potential yield estimates, depend strongly on the reference area. The implications for coral reef fisheries assessments are discussed.
