Why is this research important?

Nassau grouper is a commercially important fishery species, but they are also endangered. The Bahamas had the largest remaining All animals move for their survival either for food, protection from predators, to reproduce or even as a response to climate change. We want to better understand the extent to which different populations of Nassau grouper are linked. Understanding this connectivity and the extent to which Nassau grouper move is important to allow us to better manage this economically important species by protecting essential habitat/s, manage fish stocks and, ensure areas open to fishing receive the benefits of spillover so fishers can benefit.
