Coral Spawming - A Sightful EventAuthor(s): Yang Chen
Hard (or stony) corals recreate by delivering their eggs and sperm all simultaneously. This generating cycle is perhaps of nature's most stupendous occasion. One time each year, on prompts from the lunar cycle and the water temperature, whole states of coral reefs all the while discharge their little eggs and sperm, called gametes, into the sea. The peculiarity infers a submerged snowstorm with billions of beautiful chips flowing in white, yellow, red, and orange.
