LIVE CORAL PROPAGATION & LEARNING POOL

The sea water from our pool goes without waste as it provides an excellent natural environment for production of seafood and corals in our cultivation center.
Seafood is one of the most popular sources of protein worldwide. Almost half of the seafood we eat comes from farms. Through aquaculture, we will help the environment by reducing the impact on wild fish populations and marine habitat in the sea.
 
According to a publication by Reefs at Risk Revisited in 2011, 75% of the world’s coral reefs are threatened by a large combination of stressors., Bleaching, overfishing, and warming waters are only just a few of the maladies these unique and precious environments face today. Our aim is to rebuild many unique species and turnaround the degradation of the coral reef environments.
 

SEA GRAPE CULTIVATION

Sea grape serves as a dune stabilizer and protective habitat for small animals. Tall sea grape plants behind beaches help prevent sea turtles from being distracted by lights from nearby buildings. Sea Grapes also rich in protein, calcium and polyunsaturated fatty acids found in omega3 group (DHA, EPA, ALA) , effective in soothing inflammation and reduce the symptoms of arthritis.

Sea Grapes, rich in calcium, potassium and vitamin C, is effective in reducing blood pressure due to the ability to promote excretion and maintain normal blood pressure for people with high blood pressure. In addition to vitamin C, Sea Grapes also help control sugar level and activity of free radicals, decrease intracellular accumulation of sorbitol and inhibits the binding of glucose and protein, reducing complications of diabetes.

 

GIANT CLAMS CULTIVATION

We will be the first park in cultivating giant clams in Malaysia. Giant Clams are the indicator species for well-managed marine areas. They use a siphon to draw in water to filter and consume passing plankton. Giant clams are excellent bio-filters, which mean they extract nutrients out of the water for their own use and this is how they take in nourishment.

Giant clams play an important role in the building of coral reefs. The giant clams produce calcium carbonate from their shells which is eventually deposited on the coral reef framework, leading to bigger reefs. After the clams die, their shells are also deposited on the reefs.
