Completed in 2014, the dredging of Port Miami led to the destruction of the majority of reefs in the surrounding area. A survey completed by the National Marine Fisheries Services found that as much as 81% of the reef near the sites that were dredged were buried by sediment, with another study showing showing as much as 93% of the corals showing partial death because of sediment. Staghorn coral, a vital reef structure and an endangered species, were amongst the corals that were not relocated and killed/damaged during the dredging. The Army Corps of Engineers plans to dredge Port Everglades in the near future, another area that is surrounded by reefs.
Currently, Coral Morphologic alongside FIU are working to establish a nursery for the next generation of urban corals that will be used to repopulate many areas damaged during the dredging. 10% of each purchase of this product will go to the Coral Morphologic fund.
