Coral Spawning Slicks Take Over South Shore


We were out surveying coral reefs on Monday and saw many MASSIVE slicks of coral spawn along the South Shore. Each slick was composed of what must have been millions of coral larvae. With the calm winds of the past few days hopefully the larvae will stay around the island and make it back to the reefs where they can start the next generation of coral reefs!

I could see the coral slicks from my airplane as we took off from Bermuda yesterday, the 26th at 12:20 pm. It was quite a site! I actually thought maybe it was leftover silt and dust from the implosion of the hotel.
