Coral Line by: Patrick Emmenegger

Coral Type: Branching

Coral species: Acropora sp

Message: For Patrick

Notes: Unfortunately due to this year’s El nino event many of our coral lines have been affected by coral bleaching and a lot of coral fragments have died as a result. For this line, the effects of the warm water were quite severe and resulted in 80% of fragments dying. Whilst this is not good news, this data is still really important for our research. The colonies will be transplanted in the next 6 months.
