Seaweed Pod / Seagrass Beds Ecosystem Rehabilitat

Seaweed Pod
Seaweed Pod

Ensuring the health of the seagrass bed ecosystem is conducive to the sustainable development of the marine aquaculture industry, and the current seagrass bed ecology is mainly based on artificial restoration, with low efficiency and low seaweed survival rate. The Seaweed Pod is a modular seagrass beds rehabilitation system with seagrass seedlings on it. It uses coconut shells as a carrier for seagrass plants, forming a robust network through modular connections to ensure the growth of seagrasses.
