The Soto’s Reefs (south, central and north) aka Cheeseburger Reef is located in 8 to 30 feet of water immediately adjacent to the north edge of the proposed dredge pit and at least half of it will be completely smothered and killed by silt during dredging operations if the cruise berth goes ahead as planned. Staghorn coral, Acropora cervicornis (pictured here), is an endangered species and on the comeback in George Town Harbor. Also on that list and coming back in GT Harbor is Acropora palmata, the elkhorn coral.
