Observations of Deep-Reef Ichthyofauna from the Bahama and Cayman Islands, with Notes on Relative Abundance and Depth Distribution
Observations of fish species inhabiting vertical wall habitats were conducted in the Bahama and Cayman islands. Twenty-three species from 12 families were recorded from various sites during the study. Number of species and abundance of individuals decreased with depth on the escarpments observed. Gramma melacara was the only species found throughout the depth ranges on all escarpments observed. Information about these habitats is sparse and more investigations are warranted.
