Coralise is a project which aims to reduce juvenile coral mortality (99%). The substrates are a unique ceramic material made of calcium carbonate from coral skeletons. This, along with its carefully designed 3D printed organic form, attracts the coral larvae. The pattern on the product replicates the corallite structures created as coral grows its skeleton, thus protecting juveniles in developmental stages. These substrates are created for lab research and ocean reefs.
