Caselle Lab contributes to CA MPA evaluation

February 20, 2022

Caselle lab scientists are deeply involved in preparing California for a decadal evaluation of the state's unprecedented network of Marine Protected Areas.  Using historical and recent data to evaluate the ecological performance of MPAs, we co-produced (with legions of collaborators) four technical reports and are continuing work with the state and other partners to synthesize this vast amount of information.  We work in kelp forests, rocky intertidal, mid-depth and deep water rocky reefs and use a variety of tools including SCUBA diving, baited remote underwater video (BRUVs) and citizen science hook and line fishing.   You can learn more and download the technical reports here:
