Abstract

The aquatic environment influences coral lifeform. To find out the species and types of coral growth in the Meti Island, East Tobelo District, North Halmahera Regency, this research was conducted in April - June 2016 using the Line Intercept Transect (LIT) method and Photo Line Intercept Transect (PLIT) method. The observations showed that the types of coral growth found in Meti Island waters were mostly dominated by corals with non-acropora growth types of 8 growth types and 5 acropora coral growth types. This condition is caused because Meti Island waters are open water types with high current and wave velocity and fluctuations in water quality changes that occur quickly.
