Coral Publications is a small and innovative company

Coral Publications was established in 2008 by marine biologist Tim Wijgerde. At first dedicated to science writing, Coral Publications now assists companies and various institutes with many challenges within the domain of marine aquaculture. Read more about our ongoing projects below.

  1. Seaweed aquaculture
  2. DyMiCo technology
  3. Soft coral research
  4. Coral aquaculture

Together with several partners, we are developing seaweed culture systems. With an innovative aquaculture method, we plan to grow seaweeds for the European food market.


Together with EcoDeco BV, R.H. van Dijk Lelystad Beheer BV and Jarathana International, we are developing an innovative filtration system for marine aquaria.

With DyMiCo (Dynamic Mineral Control), aquaria filled with corals and fishes can be maintained much more easily.

In addition, DyMiCo uses less energy and requires no water changes or additives.



In 2014, we started a research project aimed at developing a protocol for the sustainable aquaculture of soft corals (Dendronephthya spp.). Together with BlueLinked BV, we successfully raised money using the Indiegogo crowd funding platform, and we are currently testing our culture protocol.

Together with EcoDeco BV, BlueLinked BV, and support of the Dutch government, we established a nursery for the sustainable aquaculture of stony corals in The Netherlands.
