“The aim of this project was to compare growth rates of corals at the Biorock to other reefs around Koh Tao, by analyzing coral photos which have been collected over three years by an ecological monitoring station. We find that corals on the Biorock structure grow up to 80% faster than corals in other reef areas when conditions are optimal.”
