Study area: Turtlegrass (T testudinum) meadows at the CARICOMP site in Isla Colon extend from the shore into the sea to a distance of 150m.
For a detailed description of the sampling methods refer to CARICOMP (2001).
Environmental data: Seawater surface temperature (SST), salinity and Secchi disk depth (horizontal measurements) were recorded above a seagrass meadow (average depth 2m) near the CARICOMP site (9[degrees]21'0"N-82[degrees]15'0"W).

El objetivo de este estudio es presentar los resultados del monitoreo en la estacion permanente de CARICOMP, Meager Shoal, compararlos con otros estudios de la region y dar algunas recomendaciones para su manejo.
La cobertura de coral vivo encontrada en Meager Shoal en 1999 resulto mas baja que la informada ahora (Fonseca 2003), pero esto se debe a que en esa ocasion se utilizo la metodologia AGRRA, que consiste de transectos en linea recta que no siguen el contorno arrecifal, por lo que la cobertura se subestima en comparacion con la metodologia de CARICOMP y los resultados no son comparables.
