Engineering Reef Structures:
REEF Growth Systems Feature Problem-Specific

Reef Proliferation Substrates

Restoration

Diverse opening sizes, as well as substrate surfaces provide proper scientific incubation sites and protection for different fish, algae, minerals and other marine plants and animals. A farm or forest can be created swiftly, in the configuration which works for the individual reef site, or farm community. REEF MIX LINK:

  • Reef forest & reef farms for fish and marine habitats

  • Protective barrier reefs with vessel docking, which diverts tsunami and hurricane wave impact

  • Oyster/clam substrates for shallow or deeper water systems

  • Architectural and sculptural dive reefs

These structures:

  • Gravitate invasive species away from healthy reefs

  • Recycle previously destroyed reef systems

  • Are designed to work with each unique ecosystem to add the proper pH, eliminate any harmful toxins in the water and attract the algae and fish needed to naturally and swiftly restore or completely build new reef systems, all while reducing the CO2 footprint

     

Engineers are available to customize a site

                  and create solution-specific structures. 

Coral reefs are an extremely powerful tool for coastal protection. Reefs reduce wave energy by 97%, greatly limiting the force of waves that could otherwise hit coastlines, causing erosion and flooding. 

 

Marine and reef ecosystems worldwide are experiencing an increased frequency and intensity of disturbances because of anthropogenic and natural factors, including global warming, industrial spillage, contamination and hurricanes. There is an urgent need for innovative projects aimed at restoring degraded and damaged reefs to healthy condition. Such projects require the development of bio-compatible construction materials by “mimicking” the structure and composition of coral reefs, which can then be used for massive restoration projects required to improve the marine environment.

 

Additionally, to date, federal agencies with mandates for coral protection lack mutual agreement on a regionally-accepted and standardized protocol for coral compensatory mitigation in accordance with the 2008 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Mitigation Rule.  Thus, to address this issue, what is needed are systems for both assessment and restoration of both new and existing, damaged or thriving reef systems.

Shown above are the elements included in wave break, shoreline or reef protection elements, which can be created in an alkalinity restoration mixture which "bathes" the damaged reef as water flows through the micro-climate walls surrounding a reef. 

Assembly occurs either in the factory, on the boat or under the water, depending on ease of access.

 

Each "Wave-Break Stick" is cast in the proper coral reef growth matrix for its particular geographic region. Assembly can be tailored to hold back erosion, protect a sensitive sea creature incubation area or be used as a coral reef substrate.
