The Worlds Biggest Black Coral Reef Discovered in Calabria

The largest forest of black coral has been found off Calabrian shores.

Marine biologists made the discovery close to the Scilla region, overlooking the Straits of Messina.

''This is the first time these rare and protected species have been observed and studied in their natural habitat thanks to the sophisticated robot,'' said project chief Simonepietro Canese.

Calabria's marine diversity is currently subject to a survey and will continue next year.
