||"The objective of this project was to determine spawning and nursery habitat (as defined by Beck et al. 2001) for 3 species of commercially valuable reef fishes in Kosrae: humphead wrasse Cheilinus undulatus, blacktail snapper Lutjanus fulvus, and humpback red snapper Lutjanus gibbus. L. fulvus and L. gibbus are moderately large (maximum size 40-50 cm) snappers that are common throughout Micronesia and are important reef fisheries species. Specifically, mark -- recapture techniques were used to compare density, persistence, growth, and movement of newly settled and adult snappers and humphead wrasse in a variety of habitat types. Another objective was to create detailed habitat maps for key areas of Kosrae. In order for fisheries management to incorporate essential fish habitat, information on the location and extent of such habitat must be available to managers in a format that is intuitive and readily accessible. Digital habitat maps created in a Geographic Information System (GIS) format are particularly useful in that they allow the merging of habitat data with other thematic layers, such as fish or coral abundance and distribution, fishery catch and effort, pollution sources, etc. Such maps can be used to support a wide range of coastal management activities in addition to fisheries managemen"--P. 3.
