SeaHives recreate the natural shape and structure of reefs, providing the ideal habitat for cleaner fish and invertebrates to adopt their normal behaviour, and  as a result, reduce their exposure and stress.

Wrasse have been observed to prefer occupying SeaHive shelters rather than the side and base of cages in salmon farms where they have been introduced to control parasites.

Recent research confirmed that Lump Fish, another cleaner fish species, are attracted to smooth, hard dark surfaces, and hence show positive behaviour towards SeaHive shelters

SeaHive shelters can be placed in breeding tanks for juvenile cleaner fish to habituate fish to their presence.  This practice ensured that when cleaner fish are transferred to open water there is something familiar for them in their new environment, reducing their stress and increasing their rate of survival.
