Resource ecology of the Bolinao coral reef system.

The book describes an intensive four-year program of monitoring the community ecology and harvest patterns of a large fringing coral reef system in northeastern Philippines. Reef harvest methods included principally gathering, handlining, trapping, gillnetting, seining, coralling and spearfishing, both with and without air compressors. Blast and cyanide fishing have substantially diminished hard coral cover, as have coral-grabbing anchors.
