Phuket places new artificial reef

Phuket places new artificial reefOn December 20th 2012 at Kata Beach Phuket, Mr.Paiboon Upatising – President of Phuket Provincial Administration Organization (PPAO) presided over the opening ceremony for the “Placement of artificial reefs to restore coastal ecosystems” event. There were a large number of honorary guests, media and local people in attendance.

Mr.Paiboon said, “We very much appreciate the cooperation we have received from Karon Municipality, Region 3 Navy, Marine Police Division and Bureau of Natural Resources & Environment Phuket who have helped to make this great project happened. There are now 8 million people visiting Phuket every year, a large number of which enjoy diving or simply visiting the sea. We have known for a long time that coral implants bring a lot of sea’s animals and therefore they also attract tourists who come to dive. This is the third time we have placed artificial reefs around the island, and now have them in Nai Yang Beach, Cherngtalay and Karon.”
