Mission Statement

Deep Coral Ecosystem Studies (Deep-CRES) consists of a multi-disciplinary team to study the biology and ecology of mesophotic reefs off La Parguera, PR. Research is driven by three objectives: (1) Characterization of the mesophotic coral ecosystem; (2) Connectivity between shallow and mesophotic environments; and (3) Vulnerability to anthropogenic stressors. Deep CRES utilizes the resources of the Caribbean Coral Reef Institute (CCRI) for program administration, webpage support and dissemination of results to pertinent management agencies. This work is funded by the NOAA's Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research (CSCOR)
