Beneath the coastal waters of the world lie thousands of artificial reefs. Some are old and retired freighters and ships that once plied the oceans of the world but now serve as habitats for marine life. Others are newer reefs that have been designed and built for specific applications. With the field of aquatic habitat technology continually growing, this book responds to the global need for a compendium of consistent and reliable practices with which to evaluate how well artificial reefs meet their objectives. Artificial Reef Evaluation With Application to Natural Marine Habitats is a comprehensive guide to the methods used to document the performance of artificial reefs in coastal and oceanic waters. It is the first volume to combine the essential disciplines required for proper evaluation, including engineering, economics, biology, and statistics. This work covers the design of reef studies, multi-disciplinary methods of investigation, data analysis, and examples of applying the methods to reefs built for different purposes. Further, the methods examined in this book apply to other benthic marine habitats, such as coral reefs or a€œlive bottomsa€, thus expanding the booka€™s relevance to a wider audience and enhancing research efforts in the field of artificial habitat technology.... fish and macroinvertebrates/destructive assessment) electrofishing, 146-148 hook-and-line, 146-148 ichthyocides, 146-148 netting, 146-148 trawls, 146-148 diagrams (also see reef engineering) reef performance, 10 Dicentrarchus labrax, anbsp;...
