Coral-copia! Great News at Great Barrier Reef- superb spawning season 2021 plus generous support from Billie Eilish #Cairns #Australia

Marine biologist, (Gareth) “Phillips said conditions have to be just right for the reef to erupt — it only happens at night, several days after a full moon, the ocean must be calm and water temperatures above 26 degrees for a full month.”

“…This spawning event is another sign that the reef is recovering, it is not all doom and gloom for the reef, it is looking amazing and it is very encouraging to see it bouncing back.”

From The Site-

Ready to represent the storied Northeast fishing community of Gloucester, Gus (the captain), Nino (the engineer), and Joe (the deckhand) are three old-school Italian fishermen with small town values and big time hearts. Bonded together by blood (Gus and Nino are brothers, Joe is their cousin), they also work side-by-side as crewmates aboard the Captain Dominic. They believe their experience working together under pressure and routinely risking their lives while out at sea gives them an inherent "toughness" that will help them win. We’ll see if that’s the case.
