BEWARE OF IMITATORS
02/28/2013 - 12:33 -- S.J.Nepomucene
Genuine Biorock projects have been developed and produced by the Global Coral Reef Alliance, the late Wolf Hilbertz, Tom Goreau, and their trained and licensed students and colleagues. There are several groups around the world peddling imitation Biorock projects. These people have not been trained by us in Biorock methods, are not licensed by us to use Biorock technology, and do not get our results. Some of these groups falsely claim they are associated with us, others have created fake names for the method to fool people into believing they invented it.
Genuine photographs of the projects of these imitators makes it clear that they are not getting the greatly enhanced coral growth that our Biorock technology uniquely provides; their projects will work only as long as water quality conditions are perfect, but suffer almost total mortality when the water gets too hot, muddy, or polluted—that is why they never show photographs of long term results, like we do!
These imitators’ lack of mastery of Biorock techniques leads to inferior results, and their failed projects embarrass us because their inability to do them right make people think Biorock doesn’t work. We will not be responsible for their failures, or repair them.
If you want real results, don’t let yourself be fooled by these imitators! Check with us first to see if those claiming to use Biorock (or whatever fake name they may call it) are working in concert with us. We remain ready to partner with all those who want to use the most cost-effective methods to restore productivity of our badly damaged marine environment. We provide the services of properly trained and certified Biorock practitioners to all of our partners to ensure proper use of the best Biorock methods to restore coral reefs, oyster reefs, saltmarshes, seagrasses, fish and shellfish habitat, and beaches.
