Spider Island - Egypt

Spider Island - Egypt

​A central Aquatic ecosystem growth unit for building a new robust ecosystem. Through the purification of the stagnant lake water with shaded moving parts, covered with Halophytes, and polycultures to rebuild a robust aquatic ecosystem and boost fish production. 

  • Reducing and stabilizing water temperatures, by creating shade with plants;

  • Increase oxygen levels due to lower water temperature and increased primary carbon production;

  • Reducing salinity and nutrients levels and building fertile soils from lake sediments by ecological growth, of halophytes and salt-tolerant crops;

  • Reduction of heavy metal pollution out of the soils by biomass growth

  • Building a robust and biodiverse aquatic ecosystem. With a full kickstart of the food web to increase and stabilize sustainable fish production.
