It's not all doom and gloom. Good things do happen in the aquatic world!
Marine scientists at CCMI's Little Cayman Research Centre say the coral
nursery project established in September last year to help replenish
local reefs is doing well. As a pilot project, researchers deployed a
single structure, multiplying four parent colonies of staghorn coral to
58 new individuals. After 3 months of the trial, all colonies have
survived and are growing rapidly.
“The indirect beneﬁts of this conservation project and a healthier reef
ecosystem will positively impact local tourism and improve local ﬁsh
stocks,” noted a report from the Central Caribbean Marine Institute
