The role of Biohut ® placed in various places strategic in Saint Florent’s port is to replace the nursery subtracted by the man and to allow so to restore the natural cycle.

Thanks to the various types of Biohut ®, quays, pontoons and coastal arrangements become again refuges of biodiversity for numerous coastal marine species.
