These fishermen use a free-diving technique to simultaneously exploit the local stocks of queen conch and spiny lobster. Using. Species-specific impacts of a small marine reserve on reef fish production and fishing productivity in the Turks and Caicos Islands, marine reserves are widely considered to potentially benefit reef fisheries through emigration, yet the empirical basis for predicting the extent of this for small reserves is weak.
