a Total fish fence effort around Kaledupa Island between 2002 and 2016, showing total number of fish fences in use (pink), and length of fences measured along the central spine (orange). b Catch statistics from fish fences between 2003 and 2016 during intensive 5-week study periods July–August, showing catch per unit effort (CPUE; grey) and number of individual fish caught (purple). c Overall proportion of fish caught as juveniles for the total catch (all species combined; yellow), for species that mature above 15 cm (green) and for species that mature above 20 cm (blue). Data shown in a and b are mean ± 1 standard error (SE) where applicable. For n of fences and catches surveyed at each time point see Supplementary Table 1
