Proprietary Products

Oyster Platform

Acer has developed techniques to restore oyster reefs on unconsolidated bottoms with a lift system and HabiTubes filled with oyster shell or rock to minimize and hold oysters.


Fish Habitat

Acer has developed fish habitat that can be placed in flowing streams or floated in lakes.  This habitat can hold woody material and fiberous materials that provide habitat for insects and small fish.

Fish Food

Acer has developed a proprietary fish food that takes thirty (30) days to dissolve in running water.  The food can be made with fish food or other materials for targeted fish species.


Submerged Aquatic Vegetation

Acer is utilizing HabiTubes to grow Submerged Aquatic Vegetation.  Which can be used as an aid to grow in situ or can be used to grow plants in another location and transplanted into another location (similar to sod).


Substrate Sieve

Acer has developed techniques to grow benthic macroinvertebrates that grow in the bottom of streams.  The sieves are buried into the bottom of stream with current materials and later relocated to streams as part of a 'seeding' project.

Oyster Bags

Acer has developed techniques with HabiTubes to provide habitat for oyster to establish in situ or relocate to another location.  The HabiTubes can be used as wraps on rocks or post or on slopes to establish oysters.
