This project is a continuation of the Florida disease response coral rescue effort. During the first two years of this project, approximately 980 rescue corals were housed at NSU in the land-based SEACOR system. While primarily acting as a receiving and quarantine facility for newly rescued corals, NSU also has filled the role of both a treatment center and overstock holding for some corals previously held by other project partners. The NSU team has also assisted with logistics issues regarding both rescue and non-rescue coral transportation as needed. The scope of this project was expanded, in collaboration with Dr. Joana Figueiredo’s efforts in coral propagation, to include the microfragmentation of key reef-building species.
