Diadema antillarum (black sea urchin) The black sea urchin, also called a long-spined sea urchin, is the most abundant and important herbivore on the coral reefs of the western Atlantic and Caribbean basin. When the population of these sea urchins is at a healthy level, they are the main grazers which prevent algae overgrowth of the reef. symbol,vector,illustration,Animalia,Echinodermata,Echinoidea,Diadematoida,Diadematidae,Diadema,antillarum,reef,coral,algae,grazing,abundance

Epinephelus itajara (Atlantic Goliath Grouper) The Atlantic Goliath Grouper, commonly known as the jewfish, is a large saltwater fish of the grouper family found primarily in shallow tropical waters among coral and artificial reefs at depths from 5 to 50 m (16 to 164 ft). They may reach extremely large sizes, growing to lengths of up to 3 m (10 ft) and can weigh as much as 360 kg (790 lb). Since 1990, the fishery has been closed to harvest throughout the southeast region of the United States. symbol,vector,illustration,critically endangered,IUCN,protected,Chordata,Actinopterygii,Perciformes,Serranidae,Epinephelus
