New CFRP publication on the mating behavior of the Gulf Grouper within Cabo Pulmo National Park!

The Gulf Grouper is an iconic reef that is endemic to the Gulf of California bioregion whose populations have been decimated by overfishing of its spawning aggregations. Researchers from CFRP, the Gulf of California Marine Program, and Cal-State University Northridge teamed up to study the reproductive behavior of this species within Cabo Pulmo National Park, the only protected spawning site for this species. This study was led by Timothy Rowell as part of his dissertation research at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and the project was supported by grants to Brad Erisman (CFRP) and Octavio Aburto (Scripps) from the WaltonFamily Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and World Wildlife Fund Mexico.
