The Third Biorock Workshop will be held in Pemuteran, North Bali, from November 21-28, 2005.
The Biorock Process is a revolutionary technology used to grow structures and marine ecosystems in seawater. It provides a cost-effective and sustainable method to accelerate coral growth and increase coral survival particularly in areas where environmental stress has affected existing reefs. Biorock methods can help restore damaged coral reefs and provide building materials from sustainable energy resources for marine culture of corals, oysters, clams, lobsters, fish, and erosion control structures.

Participants from across Indonesia, Asia and around the world are expected to attend the North Bali workshop designed to provide hands on experience on Biorock processes.
The workshop will be led by Dr. Thomas Goreau and Prof. Wolf Hilbertz, two of the world's leading experts in Biorock Technology, and is designed especially for dive shop operators, hotel and resort managers, conservation groups, coastal zone managers, fishing communities, marine scientists, mariculturists, tourism agencies, seascape and landscape architects, engineers, artists, government fisheries, environmental and tourism policy makers, and others seeking the training necessary to design, construct and operate their own Biorock structures for reef restoration, erosion control, tourism, mariculture, remediation or marine science.
The workshop will be headquartered at Pemuteran's beautiful Bali Taman Sari Resort.
