BESE - mesh bags starts a worldwide trial
Testing the effectiveness of the mesh bags in oyster reef restoration
Oyster restoration efforts all over the world use plastic mesh bags. The mesh bags are filled with oyster shells and placed into the water to recruit oysters. The plastic however, remains and pollutes the ecosystem. BESE-products offers a mesh bag made from cellulose. The bag is fully biodegredable. After oysters have colonized the structure the bag will fall apart, leaving only oysters behind.
The cellulose mesh bags can also function as a grow out bag for aquatic vegetation like riverbank vegetation and submerged aquatic vegetation. Moreover, filled with sand or other material the bags can also function as wavebreakers in dynamic zones.
