KEY WEST, FLA. (WSVN) - Florida Fish and Wildlife is looking for the person responsible for damaging a coral reef near Key West.

Officials found blades from a large propeller that damaged the coral located inside the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, last week.

A large boat between 80 to 100 feet long is to blame, said officials.

The coral reef will need immediate repairs from the impact.

Anyone with information about the boat or owner is urged to contact the FWC.
