    The rich marine communities around Lundy, which include several species rarely encountered as far north as Britain, together with the isolated position of the island, led to its establishment as Britain's first statutory Marine Nature Reserve. Management of the reserve depends, in part, on knowledge about recruitment and longevity in the species of conservation importance. Preliminary results suggest many of the most interesting species are very long-lived, but recruit intermittently. Overall trends in their abundance are downwards. Whether this is part of a long-term pattern or a temporary downturn requires further study.
