Coral Restoration: Dutch-Hawaiian Collaboration

In collaboration with the Division of Aquatic Resources in Hawaii, Coastruction's 3D-printed coral larval settlement substrates underwent an evaluation to assess their efficacy in hosting marine life. Led by our partners in Hawaii, this study is a step forward in advancing sustainable methods for coral reef restoration.

After one year promising results have been found. The transplanted larvae attached to the 3D-printed substrates have exhibited remarkable growth rates, indicating the substantial potential of our material to sustain and host marine life.

The images provide a visual narrative, showcasing the evolution of our structures from their initial fabrication (above) to the thriving coral colonies they now harbor (below).

This breakthrough not only signifies a step forward in preserving our Blue Planet but also sets the stage for the adoption of sustainable methodologies in coral reef restoration initiatives on a global scale. Therefore, we extend our sincere gratitude to the dedicated team of the Division of Aquatic Resources for their commitment to marine conservation and restoration.
