    Abstract

    The UB ERI has been conducting fisheries independent monitoring of the lobster fishery in the Turneffe Atoll Marine Reserve since 2014. The data collection method is based on the Long- Term Atoll Monitoring Program Protocol (Acosta, 2004), so as to keep consistency in monitoring activities within the Marine Reserves of Belize. The purpose of these annual efforts is to extrapolate the density, distribution, maturity, and sex ratios of the lobster of the greater reserve area, which gives clear indications of possible population fluctuations and trends of population decline or growth.
