Artificial Reefs in Florida 101 – effects on fish: Part 2 of an Artificial Reef series

Program Area: Informed community decision-making

Increasingly, coastal managers are placing artificial reefs in marine waters. These long-lasting habitat alterations have measurable effects on fish, fishers, divers, fisheries, and marine social ecological systems. Understanding how artificial reefs function is necessary to make good decisions about future artificial reefs. Scientific research on many aspects of artificial reefs is not always summarized and explained. In response to this need, we designed a 4-part series called Artificial Reefs 101. This publication, part 2 of the Artificial Reefs series, explains how artificial reefs affect fish populations. It will help the interested public understand more about the ecological effects of artificial reefs and provide detailed information to stakeholders including management agencies, local governments, artificial reef manufacturers, and Extension agents, to allow for better-informed decisions about building and managing artificial reefs.

Spawning Potential Ratio: A Key Metric for Managing Florida’s Fisheries

Program Area: ==Natural Resources==

From red drum to red snapper, many of Florida’s fisheries are managed with specific consideration given to a quantity called the Spawning Potential Ratio (SPR). This conspicuous acronym is an important metric to fisheries biologists and managers. It helps determine harvest size limits for fisheries and drives regulations for both commercial and recreational fisheries. However, SPR is not especially intuitive to the general public or even agency personnel and Extension agents. This publication is intended to describe what SPR is and explain how and why it is used in managing fish stocks. We think it will help people better understand fisheries management decisions, the documents describing them, and the science behind them.
