|WHAT IS A CORAL REEF?
Coral reefs are constructed by living plants and animals, primarily corals that surround their
small anemone-like tentacles in a hard skeleton that forms much of the reef structure.
They generally occur in clear, tropical or semi-tropical seas to a depth of approximately 100
meters (328 feet). Coral reefs fringe approximately one sixth of the world's coastlines and
are the biologically richest of all shallow-water marine ecosystems.
They support as many as 1 million species of animals and plants, but only a small fraction
have been described. Among the best known groups are at least 5,000 species of fish,
over 10,000 species of mollusk and more than 800 species of reef-building corals.
Approximately 30 percent of marine fish species occur on coral reefs.
