Hello all --

While on the subject of epoxies, I need some help.  I am participating in a
conference later this month regarding the establishment of "corridors" to
minimize reef damage due to fiber optic cable laying.  In addition to
corridors, are there other conservation techniques the scientific community
is interested in advancing?  My first priority is to get corridors
established where the reefs are absent.  Beyond that, how can you help
alleviate the following:

(1) Damage due to the accidental release of drilling muds, such as betonite.

(2) Damage due to pinning corals between hardbottom and cable.

(3) Abrasion damage from swinging cables.

(4) Cracking of corals -- the epoxy question.

Are there other concerns?  The critical battle is to get the cables away
from the reefs entirely.  But what can I ask for short of that?  Also, does
the community see other potential damaging activities?  These four are the
generally acknowledged one.

Subject: epoxy

I was wondering if anyone knew of any brand names (and company if 
possible)for epoxy resin used for underwater fixing of corals to hard 
substrate.I have seen it being discused in e-mails and mentioned in 
papers and could use it for a similar application.
