I adore marine invertebrates!


When mined with a Pickaxe, Coral Reefs drop 2-4 pieces of Coral total. After being mined, they can be Hammered to drop 1-3 Limestones and a Coral Larva. If the rock is not hammered, the Coral will fully grow back after 12 Days. It has a heavily increased grow rate during rain, similar to Mushrooms. It is also possible to replant Coral Reefs using Coral Nubbins.


The Coral Reef is a Biome in the Shipwrecked DLC. It is characterized by a multi colored texture on the terrain, and often contain large rocks covered in Coral. Brainy Sprouts may also be found less commonly, which may be picked for Brainy Matter. Ballphin Palaces are also found in Coral Reefs. The Yaarctopus may be found in this Biome and often plenty of Shoals are around.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • The option to replant Coral Reefs was added to the Shipwrecked DLC more than a year after its official completion in the Home Sea Home update, after being tested in a beta branch for several months.
  • Before the Home Sea Home update, the Coral Reef's Limestone used to sink, and the only way to retrieve it was by using a Trawl Net.

  • Sometimes, Coral Reefs will not regenerate offscreen after 12 days when the player is too far away from them.
  • Some Coral Reefs may spawn on top of (or very close to) other objects (like a Seaweed Plant or other Coral Reefs), making them impossible to harvest.
