The long-term monitoring program was established in 1998 and serves as a central hub for all research of the Gulf of California Marine Program. We are building on more than a decade of surveys of nearshore marine ecosystems, like rocky reefs, in the central and southern Gulf of California. With this monitoring program we are tracking annual changes in the structure, function, and health of marine ecosystems through annual surveys of fishes and invertebrates at numerous island and coastal sites. Monitoring activities also include quantitative surveys and collections of fishes and invertebrates from mangrove estuaries, sargassum beds, seamounts, and other coastal habitats.
