Reefs act as the nurseries for about a quarter of the ocean's fish, and thus help to replenish the stocks on which local communities as well as national and international fishing fleets depend on for income. By helping to maintain healthy fish stocks, reefs also provide food security for thousands of coastal communities which depend almost entirely on fish for protein.
