What's more, they found a strong positive relationship between total parrotfish biomass and the amount of coral growing on the reef.
Problem is, White says only 1 percent of Hawaii's coral reefs are under this kind of protection — which means most of the region's parrotfish are getting picked off before they can even reach full size.
This made it illegal to kill or injure several species of herbivorous fish, including parrotfish, surgeonfish, and sea chubs, as well as sea urchins anywhere in the preserve.
After several years of watching and waiting, they analyzed the results in 2012 and reported that parrotfish biomass had actually doubled.

It's not easy." But that won't stop them from trying.
Coral reefs thrive on clean, clear, low-nutrient water.
