What happens to reef fish after coral bleaching?

PRIA_JAR_20170417_01

The recent decline of planktivorous fish species has been a focus for fish researchers studying Jarvis before, during and after the latest global bleaching event. Several common fusilier species were sighted fewer than prior years. However, one species never before recorded at Jarvis in prior surveys was observed in 2017, the wide-band fusilier (Pterocaesio lativitta). (Photo: NOAA Fisheries/Adel Heenan)
