Depending upon the institutional framework, coral reef ecosystems and local economic development can be synergistic.
Coral Recruitment And Potential Recovery Of Eutrophied And Blast Fishing Impacted Reefs in Spermonde Archipelago, Indonesia
Coral recruitment was assessed in highly diverse and economically important Spermonde Archipelago, a reef system subjected to land-based sources of siltation/pollution and destructive fishing, over a period of 2 years.
Recovery In Rubble Fields: Long-Term Impacts Of Blast Fishing
This paper presents initial results from a study of factors that inhibit or enhance hard coral recovery in rubble fields created by blast fishing in Komodo National Park and Bunaken National Park, Indonesia.
Reef Degradation And Coral Biodiversity In Indonesia: Effects Of Land-Based Pollution, Destructive Fishing Practices And Changes Over Time
Abstract Species-area curves calculated from line-intercept transect surveys on 15 reefs in three regions of Indonesia allow estimation of the relative decrease in within-habitat coral species diversity associated with different types of reef degradation. Reefs subject to land-based pollution (sewage, sedimentation, and/or industrial pollution) show 30–50% reduced diversity at 3 m, and 40–60% reduced diversity at 10 m depth relative … Read More
