Hi Folks,

Sorry for any cross-postings.

I am currently working on a report that will be distributed to 
members of Congress on how proper implementation and enforcement of 
the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act could 
protect coral reefs from overfishing and habitat destruction.

Does anyone know of any specific examples where overharvesting of a top 
predator or grazer has had adverse effects on coral reefs in the 
Florida Keys or Hawaii?

Please respond directly to me at aoctd at

Thanks in advance for your help!
