Keppel Land is the developer for Corals at Keppel Bay but their effort is not just building luxurious quality home. Their effort extends to building home for the Corals and marine life as well. It has embarked to enhance the existing marine habitat around the King's Dock. The Corals are first handpicked and bred in the nursery. They are later transplanted into artificial reefs at the new site of the latest King's Dock Corals at Keppel Bay Project.
Corals at Keppel Bay developer build 10 homes for these Corals in April this year. These homes are artificial reef structure made of fibreglass, which provides a platform where the Corals can attached to it.
Consultancy firm DHI Water and Environment has been appointed by Keppel Land for this marine life project. Mr Brian Caberra, a marine biologist from DHI Water said that the artificial reef structure will provide substrates and encourages more marine habitat formation. It also serves as fish aggravating devices and will improve natural coral recruitment.
They will be monitoring and documenting the health and growth of the transplanted corals and providing the necessary maintenance such as cleaning sediment.
Fishes such as the monocle bream, orange-spotted rabbitfish, pipefish and copper band butterfly fish were spotted swimming around the transplanted branching. This is a healthy sign to show a healthy reef environment.
Mr Tan Swee Yiow, president of Keppel Land Singapore said " True to its name, Corals at Keppel Bay, apart from featuring world class waterfront homes, also provide underwater sanctuary for marine life to thrive".
The Corals at Keppel Bay Project is Keppel Land's latest initiative to protect the marine life around Keppel Bay.
Corals' expert Chou Loke Ming, an adjunct research professor at the National University of Singapore's(NUS) tropical Marine Science Institute said that they are benefits to nurturing a healthy marine ecosystem, whether it is man-made or natural. It will help to make the water clearer by filtering pollutants from the water, and also attract more marine life and become biologically productive.
