The Sarasota-based company uses cremated remains to create reef balls that help marine life thrive.
To date, Mote has planted more than 100,000 fragments of coral along Florida’s Coral Reef.
The restoration effort, which includes Mote Marine Laboratory, is the most ambitious effort to date in the U.S.
The organization plans to build an additional land-based coral nursery in Islamorada and a new coral gene bank at its new location in Sarasota County.
A portion of the sales of Enzymedica's new Aqua Biome fish oil supplements will benefit Mote's coral restoration project in the Florida Keys

Dr. Erinn Muller is the science director of Mote’s Elizabeth Moore International Center for Coral Reef Research & Restoration and manager for Mote’s Coral Health & Disease Research Program.
Muller—one of a small percentage of women to get an advanced marine science degree—won a prestigious postdoctoral fellowship at Mote that gave her two years to build her own coral research program.
Rescuing the Reefs
Scientists are fighting to save the Florida Reef Tract, the contiguous United States' only coral reef—and the third largest reef system in the world.
Mote is hosting a derby this weekend to help clean our reefs of this invasive species.
