Together with the Coastal and Estuarine Ecology Lab from UCF (University of Central Florida), oyster mats have been created made from BESE-elements.
Oyster mats have proven to be a succeful method to restore oyster reefs in the Indian River Lagoon. The only downside is that the oyster mats have a plastic base. BESE-products is collaborating with Dr. Walters from UCF to see if these oyster mats can be made of BESE-elements.
The first design seems promising and they will be placed in the lagoon upcoming spring.
