Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Porites sverdrupi are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Porites sverdrupi, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Porites sverdrupi, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Very special thanks for the first photos of a living coral of Porites sverdrupi to Prof. Dr. Joshua Feingold and Sara Melo Merino, Mexico!

Porites sverdrupi is endemic to the Eastern Tropical Pacific region, and is only known from Mexico, where it has been reported from Baja California.
This species is rare within its restricted range!
