Ellen Pikitch is co-author on a recent paper published in Marine Ecology Progress Series

Marine Ecology Progress Series articleEllen Pikitch is co-author on a recent paper published in Marine Ecology Progress Series, entitled "Abundance and size structure of a reef shark population within a marine reserve has remained stable for more than a decade." Ellen spearheaded the standardized longline survey at Glover's Reef, Belize, in 2000. This survey was conducted annually for over a decade, and provides a time series of Caribbean reef shark abundance inside a marine reserve. Results of the study show that catch per unit effort of these sharks remained stable over time, supporting the idea that marine reserves are an effective conservation and management tool in this region. Lead author is SoMAS graduate Dr. Mark Bond.
