1. The nature and distribution of the coastal and shallow marine habitats of Anguilla in the Caribbean were examined using aerial photography coupled with extensive ground truth information. 2. The objective was to develop an accurate method of marine habitat mapping for the analysis of the marine ecosystem in order to develop a procedure for marine and coastal resource management. 3. This paper describes the method which was adopted as well as the biological results. 4. It is concluded that the management and sustainable use of the natural resources may be improved as a result of accurate habitat mapping.
