Brief description

The aim of this study is to use artificial boulders in the form of sandstone blocks to investigate the benthic cryptofaunal communities of subtidal rocky reefs; specifically to quantify temporal and spatial patterns, the influence of the sub-block reef profile, and protection from fishing on these animals at locations inside and external to the Maria Island marine reserve in eastern Tasmania.

Lineage

Mobile macroinvertebrates (>1 mm) were sampled using two three-month deployments of 300 x 300 x 50 mm pavers used as aggregating devices with a standard sub-paver sampling area.

Sub-paver surveys were designed to survey large basal area invertebrates (eg. chitons and abalone) that were under-represented in the artificial crevices. Animals identified in situ and a two dimensional surface profile gauge deployed to characterise the sub-paver refuge shape and volume.
