Welcome to the SeaHives Ltd
Dedicated to creating refuge where there was none before.

Welcome to SeaHives Ltd – Dedicated to creating refuge where there was none before. Just as planting trees can help to restore a forest, deploying SeaHives can help to restore the aquatic environment. They do this by providing hard and durable surfaces for aquatic plants and animals to colonise, and a variety of robust habitats for fish and invertebrates to occupy. SeaHives increase the variety and quantity of habitats in and around large man-made structures including breakwaters, jetties and piers, especially where de-commissioned rigs are retained as artificial reefs. SeaHives are designed to be suspended

from pontoons and walkways in marinas without the need for additional strengthening or support. This allows SeaHives to provide shelter for juvenile fish in coastal areas where vegetation, especially mangrove and Sea Grass, has been damaged or removed. SeaHives are manufactured in Wales using recycled fishing nets, and are deliberately designed to be assembled and deployed by coastal communities with the minimum of training and tools. These communities can then decide where to place their SeaHives to achieve the greatest ecological and commercial benefits.

    The Blue Economy is a regenerative practice. Understanding that the natural world is the foundation of assets upon which economies and societies rest. Regenerating the natural world is therefore a key consideration in all Blue Economy activities. Of course, that does not mean that physical development of infrastructure can not happen. It does mean that when physical infrastructure is required the impact on the natural world, the loss of bio diversity, the reduction in ecological resilience mu...
