I am looking for any information on the impacts of constructing jetties
and marinas on coral reef communities. I'm interested in effects of the
actual construction process, e.g. increased turbidity, sedimentation
etc. from disturbing the sediment. I'm also interested in teh secondary
and longterm effects. For instance, a new jetty or marina means more boat
traffic and there is greater potential for anchor damage, and oil
pollution (often runoff from discarded oil).
If anyone has any information, or knows of publications or reports I'd
appreciate hearing from you.
