U.S. Coral Reef Task Force Resolution 16.6

16.6: Request that the Coral Disease and Health Consortium (CDHC) develop and coordinate strategies to address coral disease issues.

The U.S. Coral Reef Task Force requests that Coral Disease and Health Consortium serve as a Task Force Working Group to organize and coordinate scientific resources to address coral health and disease issues and link them to coral reef management (such as Local Action Strategies), with emphasis on diagnostics, etiology, outbreak investigations, training, and responses. The Steering Committee is tasked with preparing proposal for creation of a Center to organize and coordinate scientific resources to address and respond to coral health and disease issues.
