Abstract:
This data represents coral reef ecological surveys conducted in the Kingdom of Tonga from 2016-2018. 375 sites were surveyed across the Tongatapu, Ha'apai and Vava'u island groups by Patrick Smallhorn-West, Dr. Daniela Ceccarelli and Karen Stone. Data includes reef fish belt transects and benthic photoquadrats or point intercept data. In addition, the values of a range of socio-environmental predictor variables are also included in this data set.
All surveys were conducted on SCUBA. Metadata on depth, location, transect length, width etc. are included in the data files.
Socio-environmental spatial data is available at https://doi.pangaea.de/10.1594/PANGAEA.904800
