Ziggy Marzinelli shares the world of underwater kelp forest recovery. A 70km aquatic restoration project was designed to reinstate Sydney’s Phyllospora comosa – Crayweed forests, a valuable recreational fishing asset as well as a key component of the kelp forest underwater ecosystem. Ziggy’s project successfully reintroduced the missing ecosystem component. In doing so he reinstated a self sustaining recovery trajectory for the Crayweed, which was locally lost in the 1980’s due to poor water quality. This video details the experimental design and highlights the community engagement strategy that delivered positive underwater outcomes.
