Reef Creation Project
Help us create oyster reefs in Dibba, Northern Fujairah.
Creating Oyster Reefs
Oyster reefs offer a wealth of benefits to the marine environment; they are one of the most ecologically diverse and productive ecosystems on the planet. In collaboration with Fujairah Environmental Authority and Fujairah Research Center the Dibba Bay Reef Creation Project aims to support the growth of native shellfish species in Fujairah.
How to Get Involved
Whether you enjoy Dibba Bay oysters at home, or serve them in your restaurant, you can save your shells for the reef! Cleaned shells can be dropped at one of our shell collection bins at our outlets in Dubai or Fujairah.
One Shell at a Time
The program involves collecting empty oyster shells from Dibba Bay outlets in Dubai and Fujairah, curing them in Dibba and packing them in non-pollutive gabion cylinders that are 80 cm high. The shell structures are then returned to the ocean in Dibba where they act as substrates to support the settlement of native shellfish, thus providing the building blocks of a vibrant new ocean reef habitat.
