Creative local solutions are used to transport OysterBreak rings. Including local transportation and installation resources boost local economies and makes OysterBreak a greener solution. Flexible handling and shipping options also tend to minimize local habitat impact during installation. And OysterBreak rings are perfect for emergency mediation, mitigation and protection systems for permanent coastal or estuary environmental improvements.
Historically the ultimate solution for shoreline stabilization was stone. Transportation and installation costs are high and stone breaks do not provide substantial habitat improvements. And because stone breaks are not a unitized structure, high wave action in large storms can compromise them. OysterBreak becomes a unitized structure as generations of oysters cement the entire structure together. This makes OysterBreak a better solution especially in areas susceptable to large storms and strong wave action.
