Sampling Site: 
Description: ABUR: Arroyo Burro: Arroyo Burro Reef depth range from 5.4m to 7.4mThere are two permanent transects: Transect 1 and Transect 2.References on land is Goleta Pier. Transects are all 40 meters in length. Eye bolts or rebar stakes mark the following distances along each transect: 0, 8, 16, 24, 32, 40 meters. Each Bolt is marked with a yellow tape flag attached with a pink cable tie. Rebar is marked with a 10-30cm piece of yellow polyethylene tubing. Eyebolts have tubing and sometimes a small float to keep the tubing upright. Concrete 1m long parking bumpers or long epoxy coated yellow rebar stakes mark the 0m and 40m of each transect. Note that the bumpers often move during storms up to 10m away!
