NOAA Seaside Chats – Chasing Microbes

Chasing Microbes: Diving into the Mystery of Coral Disease

Just like any other animal, coral can get sick. Coral diseases can harm whole ecosystems when they spread across reefs. In 2022, a mystery disease appeared on the magnificent reefs of Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary. Join scientists in their efforts to identify the mystery disease, to predict how diseases may arrive at Flower Garden Banks, and to understand how the reef responds to pathogens, with invaluable lessons drawn from the outbreak of stony coral tissue loss disease (SCTLD) in Florida and the Caribbean. Explore the latest data on the Bank’s mystery disease as we dive into the depths of coral health research.
