(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The manmade reef project at The Wave, Muscat, Oman's lifestyle and leisure destination, has shown substantial progress in its five months growing significantly in size and biodiversity. 

The latest reports have shown that advancement of the manmade reef which is not only attracting new species but also encouraging marine life to the reefs' surrounding area. Launched towards the end of December 2014 in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, the project has introduced 60 triangular concrete modules to 2km of seabed between Seeb and Bausher to create an artificial reef effect.

Each unit, known as the Arabian Pyramid', measures 2.5m in length and width and 1.9m in height, is expected to grow in mass as more species colonise the structure. Hawazen Esber, CEO of The Wave, Muscat commented: ''This project is the firt of its kind in Oman and symbolises The Wave, Muscat's commitment to the country's environmental, social and economic development.

Our deeply rooted belief in the importance of supporting local communities has led to the selection of the wilayats of Seeb and Bausher as both lacked ocean habitat and are set to benefit from increased marine life as the surface area of the reef increases and more species move into the area.

Regenerating the seabed by bringing marine life back to our shores, the reef will become a site of great significance to the local fishing communities and other fishing enthusiasts in the wilayats.'' The reef is now home to increased stocks of juvenile and reef fish. The different light, shade, texture and water flow patterns created by the reef has enticed barnacles, crustaceans, plankton and algae, while providing shelter for smaller fish.<
