Corals along UEP-Cawayan and Puputihon reef occurs mostly in massive forms, which accounts to 13.79 meters of the live corals along UEP- Cawayan area and 11.62 meters at Puputihon reef. Branching, Tabulate and Foliaceous coral occur less, and can only be found at depth of about 3 meters sub-tidally. Fragments of corals rubbles and solid wastes are also observed which connotes high environmental pressures and stresses to the living coral ecosystem of the area.
