The ocean covers more than 70% of the earth’s surface, making it one of our greatest natural resources. Looking after it is exceptionally important and is very much needed for our marine life, as well as our economy.

Coral reef repair
The world’s coral reefs are in danger of being gone in 30 years if we do nothing to stop the widespread damage and destruction of them. Coral reefs are the rain forests of the sea and are very important for biodiversity and marine life. Their disappearance or death could put a large number of our fish species at risk, which in turn will hurt our global economy, the livelihood of those who earn a living from marine work of any kind, as well as the lives of other larger species in the sea. Coral reefs can be repaired and living, broken coral fragments can be transplanted back onto the reef. Our professional divers have a passion for the environment and make it our mission to obtain and replant any coral that has become broken or displaced.
Why is Coral Reef restoration important?
Coral reefs are under great threat, making restoration and repair a very important job, to preserve marine resources and protect our economy. There are usually two types of restoration that can be done; one being active restoration, where time and energy are given directly to increasing the coral reef health or biodiversity. The most common objective for active restoration is to restore habitats that have become lost, dead, or broken, as well as improve its resilience to limit future disturbance. Passive restoration includes strategies and management solutions that protect the habitat and allow for it to heal naturally. Active restoration is normally done after a passive restoration has been conducted.
Saving our Coral reefs is at a higher demand than there has ever been before. Due to the great threat that it faces, the health of our marine life is not the only thing that faces disaster, but our food source and economy too. Commercial Divers Miami FL professional divers are fully trained and dedicated to coral reef repair. Coral relocation is often required at the site where dredging is going to take place. Dredging is done by removing debris from the bottom of water bodies to make way for passing ships. In order not to damage the coral life in the process of dredging, coral relocation will need to be done.
Oil and fuel removal
Oil spills are dangerous for the environment and marine life. Since we now explore for oil from oceanic resources, oil spills can occur as a result. It is important to clean this up, to avoid unnecessary harm to our marine life and ecosystem. There are many different methods to clean oil spills from the ocean, such as using oil booms, using skimmers, using sorbents, or using dispersants. Commercial Divers Miami FL are dedicated to protecting our marine life and ecosystem and are equipped to conduct any of the many methods required to properly clean oil spills.
