The Mediterranean has been a food source for humans for many centuries, but in recent years it has suffered serious depletions in the natural supply of fish. Technology advances brought more efficient fishing practices and population growth has increased demand for fish, which in turn has had a negative effect on other marine life in the area.
To help restore the natural balance of fish, this project looks at helping to restore a designated area with a new reef system. Scuba divers will help to create a new reef by developing an area to transfer marine plants to. The work will be supported by continued research into the species uptake on the new reef to monitor the overall effectiveness of the site.
Groups will work as small teams under the direction of local conservationists and supported by dive instructors to remind them of safe diving practices whilst they complete the underwater work.
