Scalable Microbiome Solutions For Ocean Health And Sustainability

We create microbiome-based treatments from nature that
give ocean life immunity to human impact

Our Approach

Much like our gut microbiomes, the health and productivity of marine environments depends on hundreds of trillions of microbes that live throughout the water column and symbiotically with larger marine organisms.

We leverage these natural microbial communities to create custom environmental microbiome boosters that combat climate change, marine diseases, and pollution to improve the health and productivity of ocean environments and industry.

Coral Microbiome Boosters: Cheaper, faster, and scalable aquatic restoration solutions

Coral Shield | Heat is a coral microbiome booster (CMB) applied to coral reefs reducing bleaching and mortality as the oceans warm around them. Because we use endemic microbial species in the CMB, the coral is much more likely to acquire and retain the treatment. Our tailored and enhanced microbes will provide the helping hand coral reefs need to survive our increasingly warming oceans. Our treatment can be applied to coral nurseries on land or in the ocean, as well as at large-scale on natural reefs.

We are developing Coral Microbiome Boosters that solve the most critical environmental challenges that traditional marine restoration is unable to address. With the capacity to treat a multitude of marine environments and species, our solutions can aid environmental restoration projects, aquaculture, and industry in the following focus areas:

Global Warming

Ocean Acidification

Marine Diseases

Chemical Pollution

Biological Analysis Services

We offer end-to-end genomic and microbiome analysis services for marine industries that operate in both aquariums and the wild. Everything from eDNA-based biodiversity assessment, genotyping, and microbiome profiling. These services provide vital data and insights for biological monitoring, disease diagnostics, aquaculture, and marine research.

Evolving Coral

Evolving Coral, a documentary feature, follows Benjamin Alva, the founder and CEO of Azul Biotechnologies, as works to save coral reefs at scale. His microbial approach will ensure coral reefs around the world will be able to survive in our ever-warming oceans. Film by Aleksandr Rikhterman. For more information visit
