How does coral reproduce?



  1. 0 Votes

    Coral can reproduce in two ways: asexually (by itself) and sexually (with help from other coral). To achieve sexual reproduction, all the coral in an area releases sperm and eggs. The fertilized eggs will then drift in the sea until it finally lands and settles on a hard surface (shipwreck or a rock), then begins to grow again. Asexual reproduction happens when polyps grow themselves on a piece of coral. This helps when the reef takes damage because it makes the reef “grow” again.
