b. Sustainable mariculture (e.g. algae farming, fish or shrimp mariculture)
c. Sustainable aquaculture (e.g. shrimp, alternative feed, etc.)
d. Coral farming (for example, artificial reef projects, assisted evolution technology companies, coral farming projects and sexual propagation)

• Ecotourism to address unsustainable tourism and accelerate restoration:
1. Sustainably managed hotel complexes (which may include implementation of coral restoration practices and technologies on surrounding reefs)
2. Tourist activities (surfing, diving, snorkeling, cruises)

• sustainable infrastructure that addresses pollution:
a. plastic waste management (e.g. alternative material, waste collection and sorting, plastic recycling, AI and digital sorting)
b. sewage and wastewater treatment
