Koh Tao Hin Fai Biorock Project 2008

In 2008 the community of Koh Tao came together with the Save Koh Tao Group to construct the largest Biorock(tm) Artificial Reef Structure in the Gulf of Thailand. This structure is being used as an alternative dive site to reduce preseeures on natural areas, as a buoyancy training ground for novice divers, and as a coral and fish nursery. Due to Biorock technology, corals on the site will grow 3-5 times faster than corals in natural conditions, mainting or even increasing the biodiversity, resilience, and abundance of corals around our island.
