Description

Coastlines are the bridge between human activity and marine life. Increased human activity along coastlines damages and destroys marine communities that live in these shallow waters. Monacanthidae, an adaptable coastal fish family, has shown versatility in finding complementary habitats ranging from temperate to tropical waters. The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species assessment of the conservation status of threatened species shows the Monacanthidae survivability fares relatively well compared to other families within coastal marine communities. This presentation discusses the importance of these fishes, and outlines reasons to protect and research them.
