With this initiative, we aim to boost marine biodiversity and promote the comprehensive recovery of this space, deteriorated in the past through the industrial works carried out in the area and promote environmental education and awareness. This project also falls within the new circular economy production model, the pillars of which are efficiency and the optimisation of resources in order to restore the environment to its original state and try to improve it insofar as possible.

Colonising marine species

There are a number of encrusted species in this area, including brown and chalky algae and over 500 animal species such as sponges, hidroïdeu, bryozoa, polychaetes, anthozoa, crustaceans and colonies of tunicates.

In addition, the mobile fauna includes starfish, sea urchins and Ophiuroids and a wide variety of crustaceans and molluscs, octopus and cuttlefish.

In terms of fish, the species identified include scorpion fish, corkwing wrasse, damselfish, Mediterranean rainbow wrasse, red-black triplefin, various sea slugs, gilt-head bream, wide-eyed flounder, red sea bream, among others.

The creation of thee reefs also aims to promote various leisure activities and environmental education initiatives among the communities of both municipalities. This project once again reflects our commitment and concern for preserving the natural environment of the spaces in which we carry out our activities.
