Coral Line by: Siegfried & Buchan

Coral Type: Bushy

Coral species: Acropora sp.

Message: #Buchfriedmerger Honeymoon 2015

Notes: Unfortunately due to this year’s El nino event many of our coral lines have been affected by coral bleaching and many coral fragments have died as a result. For this line, the effects of the warm water were severe and resulted in every fragment dying which is why survival shows 0% and there is also no data for growth at 3 months. Whilst this is not good news, this data is still really important for our research. 

We will be planting another line for you, selected from some coral species which were resistant to the coral bleaching and will inform you once your new line is planted in the nursery.
