RECON is a special data sheet attached to
a slate with a pencil and 10-meter survey
line. This method is “rapid” because
once you have learned how to correctly
perform a survey; you should be able to
complete a RECON survey during a 40-
45 minute dive with a dive buddy. The
RECON Program assesses the health of
certain large (at least 25 cm diameter)
stony coral, identifies their major
stressors and characterizes their habitat.
There are 4 levels of RECON certification:
RECON I diver: This requires 2-3 hours
of classroom time, 2 supervised training
dives and 2 supervised survey dives.
The student must also receive 80% on
the RECON Level 1 Exam. RECON II diver:
Complete 6 surveys conducted with a
RECON-certified dive buddy. RECON III
diver: Complete 10 surveys and receive
80% on Level 2 exam. RECON Instructor:
Complete 10 surveys and complete
RECON Instructor training (includes 2
additional surveys) + receive 90% on
RECON Level 2 exam. For this course all
participants will be expected to achieve
Level III with Instructor status available
for those that meet the requirements.
This course will have 2 lecture contact
hours per week (=30 contact hours per
semester) and 2 lab contact hours per
week (=30 contact hours per semester).

Introduction to Mariculture
This course is a survey of tropical
Mariculture covering the wide range of
the marine sea farm industry including
the raising marine animals for use
as food, recreation, pets, medical
research and indicator species for man
made toxins released into the marine
environment by industrial processes
and waste water runoff. The course
includes the history of Mariculture, water
chemistry, environmental requirements,
pathology, and economic implications
of the Mariculture industry today and in
the future. Four hours lecture.
OCE 1001
Introduction to Oceanography
This course is intended for non-science
majors and is an introduction to the
science of oceanography. Topics include
physics and chemistry of seawater,
major ocean basins and features of
the coastline, major ocean circulation
patterns and currents, characteristics
of deep and shallow water waves and
the tides along with interactions of
atmosphere with the oceans.
OCB 2722C
Mariculture Systems & Design
An introduction to a range of marine
aquaculture systems used to culture a
diversity of organisms including marine
macrophytes and phytoplankton, marine
invertebrates including zooplankton,
and vertebrates (mostly fish) for the
food production and marine ornamental
industry. The course introduces the
concept of integrated multi-trophic
mariculture (IMTM) systems and
its application for reducing marine
aquaculture impacts on marine
ecosystems. The course contains
a laboratory component with lab
exercises and field trips to South Florida
mariculture facilities. The course includes
a basic introduction to computer
automated drafting and students will be
required to design a mariculture system
and submit a term project in the CAD
format.
OCB 2102C
Marine Data Collection
This interdisciplinary field-oriented
laboratory course involves marine
data collection and the establishment
of a marine data base for selected
reef, sea grass, and mangrove island
communities. Students will survey
marine communities with emphasis
on population dynamics, succession
and the establishment of density,
dominance, frequency and importance
values for sessile invertebrates and
marine plants.
OCB 2723C
Nutrition of Maricultr Species
A practical introduction to basic
principles of nutrition and feeding of
common mariculture species. Topics
include digestion and metabolism,
biochemical aspects of nutritionally-
important macromolecules, vitamins
and minerals, feed formulations and
management, nutritionla deficiencies
and bioenergetics of ecological
polyculture. The course will focus
primarily on marine heterotrophic
organisms but will briefly cover nutrient
requirements of marine autotrophs.
