Biomass, productivity, and other related ecological parameters of the seagrasses are measured at the sites using the same techniques. To eliminate the difficulty of determining a typical seagrass meadow, site directors were to chose the best-developed and most pristine seagrass site in their locality. In general, seagrasses at the CARICOMP sites were best developed in the vicinity of mainland or large island areas and least near small or low islands. Total biomass, above and below ground, was highest (>4000 g dw/m²) in Belize, lowest in Tobago and Curacao (200-500 g/m²), and intermediate to high (750-1500 g/m²) at all other sites (Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Venezuela). Leaf productivity followed the same general pattern, varying from <0.5 g/²/d (Bahamas) to >5 g/m²/d (Venezuela).
