Effect of biological fouling on passive collectors used to estimate fish recruitment
Source: Journal of Fish Biology, Volume 75, Number 3, August 2009 , pp. 699-706(8)
Abstract:Evidence is provided that biofouling of artificial substrata for estimating recruitment of nearshore reef fishes influences recruitment, and it is recommended that investigators consider the effects of fouling when estimating recruitment over space and time.
