Fisheries Restrictions and Their Cascading Effects on Herbivore Abundance and Macroalgae Removal at Kenyan Coral Reefs
The increase of macroalgae at degraded reefs impedes ecosystem services and calls for effective methods to facilitate a return to coral dominance. Removal of macroalgae (i.e. browsing) is typically realized by fish, but the role and identity of browsers at the heavily-fished East African Coast is still largely unknown. This study investigated how browsing pressure at Kenyan reefs (-4.700, 39.396) related to fisheries management and herbivore abundance.
