toxic waste 

REEF Filtration fence

Pictured here are Reef Life marine cell-growth matrix labyrinth elements with fish swim holes and 90-degree connectors. Curved wall pieces are available to encircle a reef with protective barriers. Slope is no issue as we can accommodate any slope by design.  

*All structures are self-supporting.

 

Wall panels measure 8-12 inches wide at top and 6 feet long with easy connection on surface or underwater.

Clients may request an absorbing cellular matrix to catch and hold toxic waste and heavy metals (such as mercury), preventing as much waste from reaching the reef as possible.

Casting of Panels for Reef Life Fish City

Clients have requested two different structures which have the same engineered pieces, but which function with different purposes:

 

Fish City Labyrinth A marine housing complex which is cast in easy-to-assemble pieces which have cell and surface structures which enhance coral growth. May be placed allmost anywhere underwater in regions needing to increase fish, coral or other marince creature populations.

 

Filtration Fence A protective device which will filter the region for heavy metals and other toxins from a spill, remediation site, or runoff. Layers of the absorptive "Filtration Fence" will actually attract and hold specific elements such as mercury and other heavy metals so that the fence can be removed on schedule. The toxins are taken out on land, so the affected region is cleaner, clearer, and far more amenable to marine life growth.

Industrial Pollution 

Humanity's industrial processes have a huge impact on the world's oceans, releasing harmful substances such as mercury, arsenic and lead into the water. Once present in the aquatic environment, these substances are absorbed into plant and animal life, eventually making their way into human food sources.

It's a bigger problem than one might think.

 

According to the World Health Organisation, up to 17 in every 1,000  children living in surveyed fishing communities showed signs of negative cognitive impacts caused by eating fish containing too much mercury.

Of course, humans aren't the only species feeling the negative impacts here--far from it. Coral, for example, is extremely efficient at absorbing these substances, and even low levels of heavy metals can prove fatal.
