Variation of Fish Community Composition in the Reef Zones of Gaya Island

Gaya Island, Sabah

Abstract: In this project, we looked at the distribution and composition of fish communities in three different coral reef zones. We hypothesized that there would be significant differences in community composition by family between the fore, crest and back reef zones, with the crest and back reef zones being most similar. After surveying 5 samples from each zone and performing uni- and multivariate analysis of our data, we failed to observe any significant differentiation among the fish community composition in the different zones.
