Tropical sea ranch at Wuzhizhou Island
The marine ranch in the sea around Wuzhizhou Island in Sanya, Hainan Province, is China’s first tropical sea ranching pilot site.
In recent years, officials and workers at the marine ranch have instituted a series of measures in order to protect and restore the marine ecosystem, including artificial reef laying, marine environment restoration, and coral transplant.
By the end of 2019, a variety of reefs had been installed at the site, including the following: a total of 1,526 artificial fishing reefs of various types, 21 ship-shaped coral reefs, and a cluster of volcanic rock reefs. The reefs were placed with the aim of creating a sustainable habitat for marine creatures.
