This project aims to explore the potential opportunities for habitat creation for a living breakwater to be constructed from Biorock, both for biodiversity enhancement and for protecting Iona Island from sea level rise. It also seeks to offer recommendations for the design of a Biorock breakwater to support the specific habitat needs of local species, including fish, shellfish, seagrass and kelp.
