- The fishbone channel plantation method has been used to revive mangroves in the Krishna Wildlife Sanctuary in Andhra Pradesh.
About the fishbone channel plantation method:
- The water from creeks are being diverted to gaps in mangroves through fish bone shaped channels, so that the saline barren land becomes fertile to support planted mangrove species.
- The shape allows the water to reach every nook and corner of the area.
- This technique is used to artificially inundate areas that do not get regular tidal inundation. By flooding dried-up wetlands near the intertidal zones, new mangroves can be reforested.
