Diving Structures, April 2005, Part 1 Coral reef conservation

In Pemuteran,Bali, scientists, conservationists, hotels, dive shops, fishermen, and villages have gotten together to build coral nurseries on which corals grow faster than normal, and around which fish school. To repopulate the area as quickly as possible with coral and fish, coral nurseries were built using the Electrolytic Mineral Accretion Technology (BiorockTM) of Hilbertz and Goreau.
It is an outstanding effort to save corals from manmade destruction by bombs, cyanide fishing and global warming.
This is a Dive-tour of the Structures.
