More information:

In November 2020, we completed a new reef in Glenelg just 1 km from the shore. Now divers are already seeing an abundance of marine life in and around the reef. Species include squid, whiting, blue swimmer crabs, plus beautiful big oysters getting on with their job of purifying the water and creating habitat for our marine life.

It was so successful and well received that we’re now planning to restore more shellfish reefs! We will be expanding the Glenelg Reef (making it four times its current size) and building a new shellfish reef in Onkaparinga. 

These shellfish reef habitats are important to many South Australians as benefit people and nature by providing nurseries for fish to breed, purifying the water, and increasing opportunities for recreation and job creation. Click here to learn more about the project.
