Ocean ecosystems are in a state of decline worldwide due to rising water temperatures and a variety of other anthropogenically induced stresses. The rates of mitigation and restoration for the problems are currently orders of magnitude lower than the rates of loss. Reefgen is developing automation solutions to greatly increase the rate at which we can perform environmental interventions in the ocean.
