Seeds for Snapper - Marine Ecosystems Cruise
- Duration: 2 Hours (approx.)
- Location: North Haven, SA
- Product code: PXVAQR
More than 6,000 hectares of seagrass meadows have been lost from Adelaide’s coastline, causing a hugely detrimental impact on local native fish populations. As well as providing an important habitat for fish, seagrasses also help to stabilise soil and sediment on the ocean floor, helping to protect Australia’s shorelines from erosion and storms.
That’s why OzFish is giving the environment a helping hand to ensure seagrass seeds get to the right places and have the best chance of taking root and growing. This help will speed up the restoration of seagrass meadows and ensure its where they’re needed.
This feature sail event will focus on the seeds being returned to the needed seedgrass meadows in our local waters off North Haven. Get on board to learn about this unique program called "Seeds for Snapper".
