REEFNotes Newsletter

REEFnotes was a printed newsletter distributed to all REEF members in the US and Canada between the years of 1994 and 2007. REEF now distributes all of our newsletters electronically. Join REEF today to start receiving your issue of our e-enews each month.

The current and past issues of REEFnotes are available to download as portable document files (.pdf). In order to open these documents you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is available free from the Adobe Website. Please note that some of the older issues are large files

In addition to articles on REEF activities, fish ID tips, and marine environmental topics, each issue features a letter from REEF's Executive Director, a current list of REEF Field Stations, a current list of REEF Field Surveys, a list of REEF's most active surveying members with at least 20 surveys, and a list of contributing members and sponsors.
