This poster was provided as a gift to attendees 2016 Marine Reserves Summit hosted by the Oregon Marine Reserve Partnership.
OMRP also commissioned illustrations for a display panel to be used in a variety of public education venues.
A Spillover Effect graphic illustrates the value of marine reserves in nurturing a diversity of species. The animals move to areas beyond the borders of the reserve, increasing the numbers and types of marine species in a much greater area than is covered by the marine reserve alone.
Simple drawings of juvenile (orange) and adult (red) Vermilion Rockfish are used in a graphic demonstrating the relative numbers of offspring produced by different sizes of fish.
Watercolor paintings of Yellow-eye Rockfish show the changes in color over their lifespan: red as juveniles, orange as adults, and yellow as old adults.
