Abstract

Coastal fish species of commercial interest observed on Underwater Visual Census transects in Marshall Islands during the CoFish surveys in Laura, Ailuk, Arno and Likiep (2007). The individual counts correspond to the observations by a single diver (one side) on the 50 m transect, from the transect line up to visibility (distance sampling).
