Evaluation on Fishery Resources in Daxingshan Artificial Reef Area of Huidong County

In order to evaluate placement of artificial reefs in Huidong County and observe biological aggregating effect of fishery resources, background investigation and follow-up investigation were carried out for trawl fishing and gill-net fishing in Daxingshan artificial reef area. The biological resource density index (D), Margalef species richness index (R), Shannon-Winener diversity index (H’), and Pileou evenness index (J') were used to study diversity of water biological population and resource density. Trawl fishing investigation indicated that after placement of reefs, there was significant increase in quantity of species of nekton, total resource density, species richness index, and diversity index in reef area, which were 1.321, 2.07, 1.012 and 1.084 times the value before placement of reefs respectively. Gill-net fishing investigation indicated that after placement of reefs, the quantity of species of nekton, total resource density, species richness index, and diversity index in reef area were 2.571, 7.976, 2.399 and 2.667 times the value before placement of reefs respectively. After reef placement, fishes and crabs become dominant population. It showed that after reef placement, attraction effect of fishes is significant, community structure is obviously optimized, and water environment in reef area is significantly improved. Thus, it proved that the multiplication system through artificial reefs has been basically established in Daxingshan reef area of Huidong County.
