Due to the sea level rise driven by climate change, there is a demand in shore protection with increasing sea defence infrastructure. The prevalence and increased spread of artificial shorelines has become a major issue for coastal areas. The damage caused by artificial shorelines to the environment impacts the entire ecosystem, including the local water quality and fisheries. With future large-scale deployments, we can transform the barren seawalls of cities and ports into thriving, biodiverse ecosystems.
