Hi all,

Last night (30 July 2010) there was a massive Acropora palmata spawning
within the Puerto Morelos Reef National Park (Parque Nacional Arrecife de
Puerto Morelos). The area we monitor is known as La Bocana Chica and
within it all of the colonies that we could see spawned between 21:43h and
22:25h. Sunset was at 19:26h and Moon rise at 22:10h.
