The Subic Blue project aspires to introduce the first aquarium fish farm and coral nursery in the Philippines, producing large quantities of tropical fish for sale and for placement back onto protected reefs. In addition to bringing a unique regenerative business to the education-focused Subic Bay Marine Exploratorium, Inc. (SBMEI) on the west coast of the island of Luzon, the new operations would also create additional jobs and provide solar energy for SBMEI and the local grid. Planned activities would also rehabilitate local coral reefs and provide real-life marine education to thousands of tourists and students from the Philippines and overseas.
