Fishing for goliath grouper was banned in United States waters in 1990 after a noted dramatic decline in population numbers. After eighteen years of protection, the species is reportedly showing signs of recovery along the west coast of Florida, with increasing accounts of underwater sightings and capture on hook and line. To assess the abundance and size distribution of adult goliath grouper within the study region, designated sites have been established over natural and artificial habitat…

TLDR
Integration of LEK with scientific knowledge is an efficient strategy for the conservation of endangered species, as it provides important additional biological information that can be used in the process of participative and sustainable management of marine resources.
