Pioneering coral research into the purposeful reproduction spawning of corals in captivity  

Coral reefs are on one of the most biological diverse habitats on earth that n estimated 800 million people globally have some dependency on. Yet due to overfishing, pollution and climate change reefs are on the brink of collapse. 

Project Coral is an innovative coral reproductive research project led by the Horniman Aquarium which Charterhouse Aquatics proudly sponsor.

The project has been pioneering research into developing techniques to stimulate coral sexual reproduction, and became the first institution globally to successfully induce predictable broadcast coral spawning as well as the first successful in-vitro fertilization of captive corals in the UK.

These breakthroughs will open up opportunities to examine the effects of climate change, aid restoration of the reefs and support sustainable livelihoods.
