The Pacific Ocean Explorers project would combine marine renewable energy and aquaculture to strengthen food and energy security in Palau. By establishing the natural spawning cycles of certain species of significance, eggs can be harvested to produce juveniles for food grow out, restocking for conservation, and restocking for food security. All of this would be achieved while using 80-100% renewable energy provided by Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC), as well as providing staff and other resources to support coral propagation for reef resilience and to combat the effects of human-induced impact.
