Underwater visual transect census conducted in the western nearshore reef habitats (<20 m) in 2000 reported moderate to high density of large reef fishes (including larger species of Lutjanidae, Serranidae, and Scaridae), suggesting minimal fishery impact in these nearshore habitats (Miller and Gerstner, 2002) though other reports suggest that large fishes had already been greatly reduced at least in the northwest (Collette et al.
bass, groupers, hamlets, and perch are all members of the Serranidae family).
