 Research Expedition Aimed at Halting Loss of Black Coral   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
"The coral collectors have always maintained that dense colonies of fl coral remain, in waters deeper than the collectors are able to work," Padilla said.
They use that assumption to justify their harvesting of the coral in areas where it is accessible, arguing that deeper, undisturbed colonies can help repopulate shallower areas that have been stripped by collectors.
Padilla and her research colleagues are focusing on the most recent areas of fl coral encroachment, at the sparsely populated southern tip of Yucatán, between the remote towns of Majahual and Xcalak.

Research Expedition Aimed at Halting Loss of Black Coral By Gale Mead for National Geographic News June 8, 2001 Aboard a research ship trolling the waters off Mexico's Yucat·n Peninsula, Mexican marine biologist Claudia Padilla trained last spring to earn her "wings"-or, perhaps more apt, her "fins"-as the pilot of a deep-sea submersible vessel.
Although the situation is troubling, Padilla and her colleagues are hopeful that coral populations can be revived, and that the results of their research will help guide conservation efforts in the region.
Over several days of diving in the submersible, Padilla was able to learn more about the status of fl coral in the area than she otherwise could have obtained in many weeks of research using conventional diving techniques.
