Dromana Shellfish Reef is a newly build cluster of five shellfish reef sites that lie under 10 metres of water offshore from Dromana in Eastern Port Phillip.
The Dromana Shellfish Reef site was chosen through an extensive site selection process, involving observational surveys, Restoration Suitability Modelling, further towed video surveys by a consultant and baseline scientific monitoring. During these surveys previously unmapped seagrass beds were found which have now been added to the state-wide biotope database.
The Dromana shellfish reef restoration site shows strong evidence of being an old shellfish reef and is in 8 to 9 metres of water. The new shellfish reef area covers a one hectare area. There is a 350 metre buffer to the nearest seagrass bed.
