Hi, a partial bleaching sign have been observed in shallow waters
(back reef zone) in Mona island on Playa Sardinera and Las Carmelitas.
Signs of PB are showed by A. palmata, P. strigosa, M. complanata and
P. porites. Transects have been deployed on this zone for a near
future assessment of a potential bleaching event by the personnel of
the Puerto Rico Department of Environmental and Natural Resources.
