Coral Reefs
A world's first new technology !
AMSL, with the successful invention of the mass culture of corals from egg to colony in open water, is proud to have the world’s first technique of this kind. In November 2005, the coral seedlings were transplanted in Majya-beach, and they have continued to grow to the pleasing size of 27cm today.
