The stage can have wide implications for the "Barrier Reef in America", which is the third largest coral reef in the world and was discovered right off the coast of the Florida Keys.
The successful result is part of what the aquarium calls the Coral Project, a program designed in part to eventually relocate the Florida Reef Tract. The project is working in partnership with the Horniman Museum and Gardens in London to create coral caviar or large egg deposits in the laboratory.
"Pure excitement is the first to make a breakthrough in the world," Florida Aquarium CEO Roger Herman told CNN. "Our team of experts broke the code … which gives hope for corals in the Florida Reef tract and for corals in the Caribbean and Atlantic."
Caviar generation has never been made for corals native to the Atlantic, so the system was created to see if it could work. According to Herman, many coral experts even doubt that the efforts of the aquarium will produce successful results.
The team began work on the study, which initially began in 201
"It is quite possible that we have just had our last wild spawning of pillar corals this year. Due to the disease of coral stone tissue loss in the Stone, coral expert at Carrie Aquarium & # 39 ; Neil said, "But with the success of this project, as a scientist, I now know that every year for the foreseeable future, we can cast the Florida columns and continue our work trying to rebuild the population."
According to the aquarium , coral greenhouses use modern LED technology and computer systems but managing to mimic the natural environment of corals to signal finely for corals to reproduce.
