Interactions of scleractinian corals with Peyssonnelid Algal Crusts were recorded at two sites and depth in Great Lameshur Bay, St. John, USVI. Since PAC in St. John is more abundant in shallow (3–5 m) versus deep (5–9 m) water, surveys were designed to contrast PAC between depths (3 and 9 meters). The first categorization of coral-PAC interactions at the Cabritte Horn and Tektite sites was August 2019, and the re-categorization was January 2020.
