There literally is no other place like this on earth. As a dive site, it’s sensational since the animals that live underneath and around the habitat are used to divers. But more important things take place there than being an incredible dive site. Everything from testing the newest technology to training astronauts is within the purview of Aquarius Reef Base.

There is good news and bad news about coral reefs. Bad news: reefs are in trouble. Many factors contribute to reef decline. Good news: there is a wholehearted effort to combat reef degradation. The Coral Restoration Foundation, in Key Largo, Florida, is a pioneer in growing and transplanting coral the reefs in the Florida Keys. Experience it with underwater photographer and writer Tim Grollimund.

One topic that caught my eye was a study about the changes in the population of yellow stingrays in various parts of the Caribbean.  The Florida Keys had the largest decline, while Jamaica had an increase. Why is that significant? Why should we care about yellow stingrays?

The Mooring Buoy System started with an idea, was implemented on a small scale, and grew to become a world dominating practice. John Halas got permission to set 6 experimental mooring buoys on French Reef, which are still in use today. In a modern era where most of the world’s reefs are in trouble, the implications for reef conservation from the mooring buoy system are incalculable.
Take a Breath... Better Make it a Big One

'take a breath' explores both the thrill and a smattering of the science associated with breath-hold diving, but it is definitely not a ‘How-To’ guide. Indeed, some of the exploits described could be viewed as risky bordering on downright stupid, so 'How-Not-To' is a more accurate description.
Oh! Those Sweet Red Lips!

I want to spend more time watching redlip blennies. They mate beginning at first light in two week cycles that start ten days before the full moon. The mating sessions last about three hours each morning, and males generally have female visitors every day. Sometimes the same females come back, but usually there are different mixes among males and females.

There’s one thing I can guarantee I’ll see on every dive. Some sort of butterflyfish will be wherever I’m going. The REEF fish identification book has six species listed in the Caribbean. I have five of them in my image inventory, and most likely will never see the other one. In the Pacific there are well over 100 species.

There are a few places in the outer edges of the Florida Keys reef tract that are a whole different world. Deep French, Deep Elbow and Deep Molasses are quite different than the shallower namesakes. The contours begin around 50 feet, and usually bottom out in the 80 to 90 foot range. Nitrox is the preferred gas on these dives.

Coming home to the Florida Keys is an exotic destination in itself. When I got home from the Philippines, it was like coming home to a vacation that was interrupted by another vacation. On our trip we did not come close to seeing a vast array of fish we see routinely on Snapper Ledge or the south end of Molasses Reef. There are not many places in America that hold that distinction.

Invasive Orange Cup Coral Silently Grows off the Keys

Orange cup coral is an invasive species. So far it has specialized on artificial reefs, dock pilings and oil rigs. On vertical surfaces, water movement, distance above the sea floor and less sedimentation than horizontal surfaces favor orange cup coral growth. Since most of our local reef structure does not have significant vertical wall structure, artificial reefs will be prime targets.
