Pocillopora meandrina, commonly known as cauliflower coral, is a species of coral occurring in the Indo-Pacific and Pacific oceans. As this coral lives in shallow reef environments then we found the domination of this species at the depth of 1m – 1.5m most of coral reefs in Phu Quoc, such as at Coral Steep (a coral reef located in South Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam) and Northeast Coral Reef or Turtle Island (North Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam)
