Image taken from Figure 5a in NMFS report (NMFS 2015). This tagged colony was coral number 3 on transect 1 at site R2N1-RR (located on an Inner Reef site and approximately 10 meters of the active dredge channel). Compare this photo with montage shown in our Figure 3 below of the same tagged coral. Diver from NMFS wafted sediment off top of colony by hand to reveal skeletal features prior to taking this photograph. Photo taken on May 19, 2015. If you only had this photo, how could you determine the cause of mortality?
