Conversely, when considering the regional scale, the major factors are island size, island type (high or low island, opening of the lagoon to oceanic influence), the connectivity between islands (function of the distance and size of nearby islands) and so forth, factors that are easy to measure and can be rather simply integrated into models. Diversity at Various Scales Species have particular habitat needs. This means that on a local scale, species are found under specific conditions. A basic law of ecology states that there is a strong relation between the number of habitats and the total number of species in an area.

Many tropical countries have neither the means to conduct intricate sampling nor the specialists to interpret them, generally leading to less adequate knowledge of the fish diversity in many coastal tropical fisheries than in their temperate counterparts. The notable exceptions are shallow coral reef fisheries, where clear waters allow underwater visual censuses that can record a high proportion of the species present, even though the reefs support the most diverse marine fish assemblages known to man.

33 million people depend on fisheries and Berkes et al. (2001) put this figure even higher, with 50 million people currently directly engaged in fish capture and as many as another 200 million dependent on their activities. The exact number is not known, but millions of people fish and depend on fishing and their livelihood security is increasingly under threat. The technological intensification of fish capture places unsustainable pressure on resources and increasing export market dependence creates economic instability (McGoodwin 2001).
