Coral Frame Locations

The majority of the coral frames will be placed on the resort's house reef, to improve the overall health of the marine environment. The coral from these frames may eventually grow onto the natural reef substrate and therefore improve the coral cover. Coral frames will also enhance biodiversity by attracting and recruiting more varied fish and invertebrate life to the area.

After a few years of growth, the corals on the frames will be mature enough to spawn and produce small coral larvae. These larvae will drift in the ocean for a few days, becoming part of the plankton, before settling onto a natural reef were they will grow into a new colony, thus helping to populate existing reefs in the Maldives.

Coral frames are also placed near Reethi Restaurant and in the small channel. As the project develops we hope to increase the location of frames all around the resort.
