Degraded natural habitats
As soon the pressures which caused the degradation are brought under control, the marine habitats may need a helping hand to return to a state where the ecological health of an environment is satisfactory.
Two principles guide our solutions:
- Contribute to restoring the environment which encourages the natural process of rehabilitating the ecosystems (hydrodynamics, sedentary equilibrium, structural complexity, etc.)
- Provide a substitute habitat enabling the environment to provide certain key functions while rehabilitating the original ecosystem.
The ecological functions of offshore structures
In a context where there is a growing number of artificial coastal structures, integrating these man-made features into healthy ecosystems is a true challenge for sustaining biodiversity and resources.
Our approach is to improve the ability of marine structures to host marine life by enhancing their design, materials, and their layout…
This conversion helps improve the health of marine ecosystems, artificial sectors and their surroundings.
The risk of further degradation
As offshore human activities escalate, there is a growing environmental risk: accidental pollution, overexploitation of resources, mechanical degradation of the sea floor, etc.
Faced with these challenges, Seaboost has developed tools and innovative procedures to manage these risks more effectively and make the marine ecosystems and the resulting activities as resilient as possible. These tools include solutions to reduce pressure on overexploited sites, fish production reefs to manage fish stocks, ecological moorings, etc.
Sustainable economic activities
Our solutions can be applied to developing, maintaining and operating the marine resources sustainably essential for:
- Fishing (professional or leisure): fish aggregation reffers for target species, anti-trawling reefs,
- Diving: fun dive trails, diving reefs, spearfishing
- Aquaculture: multi-species farms, recycling operating residues
These solutions can be deployed in order to offset the losses, increase available resources and/or relieve overexploited sites and natural resources.
To climate change
The effects of climate change on marine ecosystems and coastal areas raises a number of technical, ecological and human challenges: the growing risk of marine submersion and the need to protect, modify the distribution of species and manage resources, falling populations of keystone species (corals, mangroves, seagrass) and loss of the associated ecosystem services…
Faced with these challenges to adapt in a marine environment, Seaboost is doing research and developing the resilience of mangrove and coral ecosystems, mitigating the effects of ocean swell and managing erosion.
