This study aimed to test the effectiveness of pyramid-shaped artificial reefs in promoting regrowth of kelp forests, in order to enhance the yield of marine resources in the form of products and organisms.
Cause Of Decline:
Marine forests refer to locations where marine algae and eelgrass are abundant in large areas. However, during the high economic growth period from the 1960’s, land reclamation, coastal development and industrial water waste resulted in environmental pollution. As a result, the total marine forest area has decreased by about 40% since the 1980’s.
