Coral nurseries and future reef health explored

Cayman’s coral future, now growing on trees. A veritable forest of so-called ‘coral trees’ are taking root in Cayman’s waters. Five sites have been selected for coral nurseries, four on Grand Cayman and one on Cayman Brac. Little Cayman’s Central Caribbean Marine Institute has had coral nurseries since 2014, and its research and advice helped shape the programme now coming to fruition.

Just this week, the first coral fragments were placed on trees at DiveTech’s house reef at Lighthouse Point.

Cayman 27’s illustrious news anchor Tammi Sulliman sat down with DiveTech’s new managing partner Jo Mikutowicz, better known in the dive community as ‘Pinky Jo” to discuss Cayman’s newly-launched coral nursery programme and what it means for the future reef health on our three islands.
