    About This Project

    Hawai’i’s coral reefs are home to nearly 500 fish species! The saddle wrasse is a common sight on these reefs. Like many generalist fish species, wrasses actually do better as coral reefs become degraded - but why? Through the use of behavioral indicators, I can ask wrasses targeted questions on how they perceive their reef homes: specifically trying to understand tradeoffs of food and safety as reef habitats degrade.
