The world’s premier reef & marine aquarium magazine

Founded in the year 2000 to bring together the writing, photography, findings and thoughts of the world’s most-respected saltwater aquarists, marine scientists and reef biologists, CORAL Magazine has grown to become the most popular and longest-running reef and marine aquarium magazine.

CORAL provides wide-ranging, expert editorial coverage of reef fishes and invertebrates, aquarium system design and technology, explorations of wild reefs, profiles, interviews, and world-class color photography.

Lively, insightful, and on the cutting edge, CORAL is the definitive read in English for both home and professional aquarium keepers who are passionate about their systems and livestock and about keeping up with the latest information, products, and service.

CORAL is published under exclusive license to create and distribute an English-language version of the German KORALLE, which is edited by Daniel Knop and published by Matthias Schmidt, Natur und Tier Verlag GmbH, Muenster, Germany.
