Sustainable Coral Farming Research video update

By Leonard Ho - Posted Sep 15, 2014 07:00 AM
Dr. Tim Wijgerde has published the first video update for his "Sustainable Coral Farming" crowd-sourced research. The video shows their progress with the aquarium system and scientific equipment that will be used to learn how to best grow azooxanthellate corals (starting with carnation corals) in captivity.

Read our previous article for more information about Dr. Tim Wijgerde's Indiegogo crowd-sourced research aimed at uncovering knowledge and developing protocols to grow and farm difficult-to-keep azooxanthellate reef invertebrates.

The Indiegogo contribution period has ended already.  However, if your company would still like to support this research with financial or equipment donations, please contact Advanced Aquarist and we will arrange communication with the research team.  Dedicated research is a costly endeavor that needs your support. Corporate donations will receive honorable mentions in the published data, which will be available open-access to aquarists, coral farmers, and public aquariums world-wide.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
