The Secret Life of Deepwater Corals in the Gulf of Mexico

Researchers, through a project funded by the NOAA Restore Science Program, are exploring the connections between different coral communities that live in deepwater and low light (mesophotic) habitats in the Gulf of Mexico. These researchers are looking at the genes in four coral species to find out the family relationship between corals of the same […]

NOAA’s RESTORE Science Program provides supplemental funding to study impact of Hurricane Michael on seagrass

In 2016, dockside revenue for blue crabs caught in the Gulf of Mexico was in excess of 65 million dollars. Blue crabs are highly dependent on seagrass (Thalassia testudinum) habitat for their reproduction and growth. Yet the impact of hurricanes on seagrass health, and therefore blue crab economics, is unknown. In response to this need, […]
