Seahorse Bay

Seahorse bay is named such for the seahorses that were populated in it. The bay is one of the planets major resources, it is home to a variety of shell fish, extensive seaweed fields and algae. The algae is kept in areas to flourish and be harvested. During the first years, the group was attached by swarms of mysid shrimp. These tiny shrimp were able to swim through the protective screen, and feast on the algae. The introduction of Seahorses was a biological sound method as they fed on the shrimp.

The algae when harvested is processed into a oil which is then used for the manufacture of lubricants and polymers.

The bay has modified clams, oysters, crabs, and lobsters living in it. These are harvested and replacements released back into the bay from hatcheries.
