Table 2. Muluk: Results of the one-way ANOVAs for comparisons of biomass, inside vs. outside closures, and a summary of life histories and resilience to overfishing. Adapted from Froese and Pauly (1995) for families commonly caught in subsistence Indo-Pacific fisheries.

* In all cases, significant results indicate higher fish biomass inside managed areas than outside.
Udata did not meet assumptions of ANOVA and were analyzed using Mann-Whitney U tests.
Population doubling time: Short = <15 mo, Intermediate = 1.4-4.4 yr, Long = 4.5-14 yr.
