Abstract

The occurance and distribution of hermatypic coral species in both the littoral and sublittoral areas at nearshore locations in the Coffs Harbour region were recorded and evaluated. Total species count for the area was 16 with the greatest abundance occurring on the sheltered, northern sides of headlands. Colonies displayed evidence of damage from interactions with macrophytes and from sand deposition.
