English term or phrase:slicks
There are two approaches to obtaining supplies of larvae. Either mature colonies of planulating or broadcast spawning species can be collected and held in aquaria until they release planulae or gametes respectively, or, for broadcasters, ////slicks/// of millions of coral larvae can be collected from the sea surface at one or two well-defined times of year. These slicks can either be held in situ or transferred to ex situ aquaria.
