Glow Group, partnering with the First Naval Area Command, the First Office of Marine and Coastal Resources Management, Marine Department, Rayong Provincial Fisheries Office, Department of Marine and Coastal Resources Management, and local associations of small boat fisheries in Payoon-Pala beach, Baan Chang District, Rayong, has organized the “Marine Habitats (Artificial Reef) Installation” project. The project consisted in releasing 100 units of artificial reef at a site five nautical miles from Payoon-Pala beach. This initiative aims to restore and conserve marine ecosystems, promote responsible coastal fishery which in turn raises the income of local fishermen, and prevent illegal fishing.
Mr. Brendan Wauters, Chief Executive Officer of Glow Group, said that Glow concentrates its CSR activities in general terms on three main axes i.e. educational development, quality of life improvement and environmental conservation, and that this Artificial Reef project is expected to contribute on many levels.
