Diver places coral enclosure on sea floor

Andrew A. Shantz, Eberly Research Postdoctoral Fellow at Penn State, places an enclosure over corals on the sea floor. The enclosure excludes larger parrotfish from accessing the corals to feed on algae, allowing researchers to test the impact of selective fishing on coral health.
