Posidonia Oceanica project

Posidonia Oceanica project

Portofino Dry Gin is proud to collaborate with One Ocean Foundation in the Posidonia Oceanica restoration project within the local Marine Protected Area. The meadows of this important seaweed represent a true natural treasure, serving as not only guardians of blue carbon but also crucial actors in the preservation of marine biodiversity.

Under the scientific guidance from the Seascape Ecology Lab of the University of Genoa, divers from the International School of Scientific Diving laid biodegradable mats made from coconut fiber.
The fibers were carefully sourced from naturally eradicated donor sites, now thriving on a 100 square metre underwater canvas. Descrizione dell'immagine
In this way, a nutrient bed was created for around 2000 transplanted Posidonia oceanica cuttings. With each transplant, we aren't just restoring meadows; we're securing the future of an entire ecosystem.
Come along as we work to safeguard the Mediterranean's vital lung, one Posidonia at a time.
