In this study, coral disease was first reported in the coral hatchery in Thailand. Disease were usually found on corals aged two to five years old during the months of November to December of each year. To identify bacterial strains, culture-based methods for strain isolation and molecular techniques of the 16S rRNA gene analysis were used. The resuts showed that the dominant genera of bacteria in diseased corals were Vibrio spp. (comprising 41.01% of the isolates). The occurrence of the disease in the coral hatchery can have a significant effect on the health and survival of juvenile corals before being transplanted to natural reefs for restoration.
