Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What got me interested in farming and selling coral?  

After graduating from UWF in the Marine Biology program, I became the Marine Biologist at a new coral farm in Pensacola. This is where I learned about propagating coral and how this can be beneficial to coral reefs since it helps mitigate from the pulling of wild-caught corals from the reefs. Because coral reefs around the world are dying at an alarming rate, there may come a day when the only exposure to corals that we have comes from aquariums in our homes.

Until we can solve the problem of the dying reefs, I would like to play my part by preserving corals the best I can.  

How long have you been actively farming coral on your own (both as a hobby and a business)? 

I have been farming coral since 2019.

How long did you work with Emerald Coast Coral Farms? 

I worked with Emerald Coast Coral Farms for 2 years. During those 2 years, I was able to work with coral for about 50-60 hours per week, which allowed me to experience and absorb so much with these amazing animals.

What other experience do you have with coral?

While studying at UWF, I learned a lot about the anatomy of marine invertebrates, as well as the ecology of coral reefs. I was lucky enough to be a part of some academic courses that involved taking several trips to the Florida Keys where we surveyed corals and other marine life inhabiting those reefs. We also observed and studied the possible causes and the devastating effects of the Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease (SCTLD).
