Miami dredging caused "extensive coral mortality and critical habitat loss" for the US' only continental reef

Researchers at the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science say that local reefs have suffered extensive damage from sediment plumes stirred up by the 16-month dredging operation at the Port of Miami. The team estimates that over half a million corals were killed - those that lived within 550 yards (500 meters) of the dredged channel.
