Many reef fish use non-reef habitats (e.g. mangroves, estuaries, and seagrass/algae beds) during their life cycle. In this study we determined how many, and which percentage of Brazilian reef fish species that make use of non-reef habitats are considered threatened (i.e. red-listed) and/or targeted by fisheries. We compiled data for 559 reef fish species, which were sorted by habitat use, threat and/or target status. Three-quarters (N = 27) of all threatened species, and 87% (N = 207) of… CONTINUE READING
