Abstract

Coral reefs, often portrayed as "the rain forest of the sea", provide sustenance tohundreds of million of people worldwide. When severely degraded, reef restoration isexpected to uphold the ecosystem biodiversity and retain, at least partially, the originalbiological and ecological portraits. Such active reef restoration practices are based onaquaculture of coral colonies (mariculture them in underwater nurseries) in as much assilviculture depends on rearing young trees in terrestrial nurseries.
