Cost Light Traps for Coral Reef Fishery Research
and Sustainable Ornamental Fisheries
R. Power, S. Simpson and J.L. Munro

pre-settling reef fish and invertebrates are described.

bottles, a small plastic waste bin and two sheets
of plywood) that costs US$15 appears to be just
as effective as a large aluminium and plexiglass
trap that costs US$275.
