In the first coral propagation and transplant project on the west coast of Florida (and possibly the entire Gulf of Mexico) Manatee County Artificial Reef Staff, Reef Ball Foundation Staff and Volunteers from the Parrot Head Club completed Reef Ball Foundation coral propagation and transplant training on Tuesday and Wed. of this week. We added the following corals to the Eternal Reef Deployment on 7 mile Reef South in Manatee County. A moment of silence was held at the conclusion of transplanting in memory of the individuals in the memorial reef. The hard corals were captive breed and propagated over a two-year period entirely in the Reef Ball Research Aquarium tanks under a research permit from the FDEP.
