Floating Reed islands are bespoke portable floating refuges, which provide instant cover, habitat and protection for fish, invertebrates and mammals. The modular floating frame supports pre-established (vegetated) coir fibre plant pallets. As the pallets mature both the vegetation and root establishment provides a haven for all kinds of aquatic life, including fish, water voles, newts and invertebrates. The island’s protective measures are further enhanced when fitted with a fish refuge. This meshed cage allows fish stocks in but keeps predators out.
