Enric Sala, a former professor at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and now a National Geographic Fellow, said damaged coral will grow back if it is in a healthy environment with lots of predator fish. A healthy fish population will graze on algae that kills coral. Filter feeders, such as giant clams, remove harmful microbes from the water.
