Develop new methods of coral reef restoration
Develop and practice aqua-farming of various coral species.
Conduct a long term epigenetic study on Elkhorn & Staghorn coral
Develop easier methods for micro fragmentation for coral transplants
Develop specialized equipment which aid in aqua-farming of corals and transplant from incubators into the open sea.
The SIMRC will be the proving ground for our first generation coral incubator known as Inky™ (patent pending). Below is a video of how Inky™ was designed to mimic the natural flow of the ocean using computer controlled underwater fans. Once fully refined, Inky™ will be available for use on other restoration projects with best practices developed in Tobago.
