Seascape Caribbean is an ecosystems restoration and development group founded by Dr. Andrew Ross. We specialize in coastal marine, estuarine and river systems. We have been providing propagative coral culture and restoration of living coral and coral reef ecosystem services to tourism, communities, engineering and to governments since 2005.
OUR PROPRIETARY TECHNIQUE
In 2004, Dr. Ross developed the buoyant mid-water line (BDL) nursery for the in situ culture of coral fragments under Jamaican conditions. A combination of the methods of Bowden-Kerby and Shafir, this system provided predictable high survivorship and high growth rates per nursery propagule or fragment, opening doors to commercial use.
