Environment: Nurseries for fish
Fifty or so artificial habitats, known as "Biohuts", have been installed in Ports Hercule and Fontvieille by the Ecocean company, in partnership with the Department of Maritime Affairs. The aim of this operation is to protect the larvae and enable young fish to grow undisturbed before rejoining the marine ecosystem. By re-establishing these artificial aquatic nurseries, Monaco is continuing its commitment to marine ecology. Students from the International School of Monaco helped to set up these nurseries, and also took part in educational workshops.
