Abstract During different stages of their life cycle, trochus exhibit preferences for different reef habitats. Likewise, within any reef complex there will be variation in the availability and distribution of these preferred habitats. Satellite remote sensing is able to identify and map the relevant reef types. Knowledge of the habitat base available within any proposed reseeding area will be an important consideration in reseeding activities. Where local knowledge is unavailable, or the area is remote, satellite remote sensing offers a reliable means of assessing the habitat base for trochus.
