Researchers Discover Critical Clue In Sawfish Mating (www.oceanfdn.org)

Tallahassee, Florida. April 13, 2017. For the first time in 17 years of Florida-based research, scientists have discovered a mating ground for the Endangered smalltooth sawfish. During an expedition early April to the shallow-water back-country of Everglades National Park, a research team captured, tagged, and released three adult sawfish (one male and two females) in an area previously known almost exclusively as juvenile sawfish habitat. All three had distinctive lacerations, apparently sustained during mating, that match the pattern of teeth on the animals’ saw-like snouts. The team includes scientists from Florida State University (FSU) and the National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration (NOAA) who conduct ongoing research permitted under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) to monitor sawfish population health.

Coral Restoration Fund

 

We are a nonprofit ocean conservation organization working to restore our coral reefs, educating others on the importance of our oceans, and using science to further research and monitoring techniques. We are dedicated to creating offshore nurseries and restoration programs for threatened coral species. These programs have allowed us to take the lead in innovative nursery and restoration techniques that are implemented worldwide.

Due to multiple stressors in the late 1970s and early 1980s, previously dominant reef building corals throughout the Florida Keys and the Caribbean declined dramatically, leaving the remaining corals scattered and facing extinction.

Through propagation techniques, tens of thousands of corals are grown and maintained in multiple offshore coral tree nurseries before being strategically outplanted on reefs allowing them to continue on a path to natural recovery.
With the help of students, volunteers, scientists, and donors, our corals are successfully raised until they are “reef-ready”, outplanted onto the reef, and monitored. Our innovative techniques are scalable and they are making a difference for our oceans.
