Monitoring MPAs by SCUBA in waters off central California
Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans (March 2010)
PISCO Scientists collaborated with NOAA's Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary to release an informal, informational booklet that presents results from California's Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) baseline kelp forest monitoring surveys in the central coast study region (CCSR). The booklet presents pictographic representations of data gathered in 2007 and 2008 as part of kelp forest baseline monitoring in MLPA state marine protected areas.
