The Virgin Islands (18°20’ N, 64°50’W) lie between two major island archipelagoes: the Greater Antilles to the west and the Lesser Antilles to the southeast. Many of the reefs in the Virgin Islands are associated with mangrove forests, sea-grass beds and algal plains, which are important to reef-associated fishes.
Benthos and Fish surveys were conducted in the Virgin Islands using AGRRA protocol 2.0 and are included in the Atoll Research Bulletin, No. 496, Status of Coral Reefs in the Western Atlantic, published 2003.
