Inside a Coral Farm

Josh SaulBy Josh Saul 9 years agoNo Comments

Here is a great gallery of the Acropora farms in the Caribbean being built and tended by some of our friends over at The Nature Conservancy.  These images show some of the techniques employed to maximize growth and minimize the possibility of pests damaging the new colonies.  The coral pictured here is Acropora cervicornis, one of the only naturally growing acroporiids in the Northeast Atlantic region.  Details on the images are HERE.
