Just for information to people interested in coral spawning elsewhere than in the Caribbean.
I have heard from B. Thomassin of the Centre d'Oceanologie de Marseille, France that
a massive coral spawning was observed in the lagoon of Mayotte Island (Comoro Archipelago, Mozambique Channel)
during the nigth from 16 to 17 October. This observation was made by Jean-Michel Maggiorani, chief of the fishery
service of Mayotte (Service des Peches de Mayotte), and Bernard Gerard. The wind of 10 knots came from N/NW .
Seasurface temperature(0-3m) was of 28 C . The moon was in the last quarter. It rose at 1 a.m. and set at 12:13 a.m.
No other details.
