Figure 2: Recent change in abundance of COTS on Fairfax Island Reef (surveyed in 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014) and Lady Musgrave Island Reef (surveyed in 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014). Survey years run from 1 July of the preceding calendar year to 30 June, so, for instance, the 2012 survey year represents data from reefs that were surveyed between July 2011 and June 2012.
