Coral Spawning in Cozumel?
« on: August 06, 2008, 15:16:41 UTC »
Hello!  I just read on Undercurrent about Coral Spawning in the Florida Keys starting August 16.  Does anyone know if the same will happen in Cozumel around then too?  I'll be in Cancun starting the 15th and if it worked out, would love to see something like this.

Hi weikeld,

In that area, coral spawning typically takes place about 7-9 days following the full moons in Aug (16th for '08) and Sep (15th for '08), although organized coral spawn dives in CZM/CUN are less common than in some other areas of the greater Caribbean.

Regards,

Thanks Doc!!  Looks like I'll just miss it if it happens 7 days after the full moon.  I'll be back in Atlanta then.
