The implementation of aragocrete reefs gives the advantage of being able to design the structural characteristics that best suit the proposed environmental, social and economic interests of a project.

The use of this type of artificial substrate for the growth of marine organisms is a real option to minimize the anthropogenic negative impact in natural reef systems.

Artificial and 100% sustainable.

  • The aragocrete manufactured at Reef Aquaculture Conservancy is made with 100% sustainable calcium carbonate sources
  • Prevents damage to the marine environment and contributes to the conservation of natural reef systems

Durable, resistant and porous.

  • The durability of more than 30 years
  • Resistance of 250 kg / cm2
  • High porosity that favours the fixation of beneficial microorganisms

Versatile and aesthetic

  • The versatility of the material allows it to adapt for all types of space, size, shape and colour
  • The aesthetically crafted material provides a natural rock appearance

The multidimensional substrate with a high content of calcium carbonate (CaCO3).

  • Due to its natural shape, it creates multidimensional environments that provide refuges to benthic organisms
  • The high content of calcium carbonate makes it an excellent substrate for the fixation of coral and coralline algae
  • In addition to acting as a pH stabilizer in acidified water conditions

In public or private aquariums, aragocrete structures serve as life support to the reef community (coralline algae and corals) increasing the population of colonizing organisms, creating refuge environments for fish, molluscs and crustaceans. In addition to serving as a biological filtration medium for captive systems.
