Coral Reef Research aboard D/Y Catniss

Coral Reef Research aboard D/Y Catniss
June 1 - 15, 2019

During June 1st - 15th, 2019, The International SeaKeepers Society joined researchers from the University of Texas to conduct coral research aboard D/Y Catniss. The expedition’s objective is to identify which environmental parameters pose the most problems for corals in the Keys. The team will take coral samples which will be analyzed to see where they exhibit genetic changes associated with adaptation to the harshness of their local environment. This information will be compared to the map of known environmental conditions, to see which conditions have the most influence on corals.
