Reef Fish Behavior is intended as an overview of what is presently known about the nature of reef fishes inhabiting the waters of Florida, the Caribbean and Bahamas. It is also meant to serve as a companion reference to Reef Fish Identification – Florida Caribbean Bahamas 4th edition.

Since the publication of the first edition in 1999, notable advances in science have lead to greater understanding of reef fish behavior. DNA markers for tracking fish larvae have helped our understanding of larval transport and its crucial role establishing and maintaining reef fish communities. Lab and field studies in the Pacific have revealed a more complex relationship between species in cleaning behavior. Science and local conservation efforts in the Cayman Islands have also yielded new information on grouper and snapper spawning aggregations.
