CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Many biologists from all around the world are gathering this week for a conference addressing the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean waters.

It's the 66th annual Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute Conference, and it began Monday on the campus of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.

University officials say the four-day conference is their largest meeting ever, with over 400 participants attending from over 30 countries, including Cuba.

The conference addresses many issues like artificial reefs and how they fit in with natural coral reefs, and how the Caribbean and Gulf waters relate to each other.
