The effect of overfishing and eutrophication on coral reefs in the Central Red Sea
APRIL 8, 2014 - In the Central Red Sea, healthy coral reefs meet intense coastal development, but there are almost no data on the effects of this development on coral reefs. This in situ study investigated how the settlement of reef invertebrates might be affected by overfishing and eutrophication via fertilizer. The results suggest that if these effects are not brought under control, we may see a shift from dominance by hard corals to that of other invertebrates at shaded reef locations, hence affecting coral reef ecology

New open access study on 'In situ effects of simulated overfishing and eutrophication on settlement of benthic coral reef invertebrates in the Central Red Sea' published. Check it out!
