Around 13,000 nursery-grown seedlings and mangrove seeds were planted and about 150 protection barriers were installed across the area. Six surveys were conducted over two years to measure the success of the reforestation techniques. The programs results showed surviving seedlings are now up to three times their original size. These results will help deliver better mangrove management techniques in to the future, said Mr Kildare. ichthysproject.com Every month, thousands of residents of the Ichthys LNG Projects dedicated accommodation village in Howard Springs are treated to some of the Northern Territorys best seafood. Seafood is sourced from Darwin Fish Market and Managing Director Ziko Ilic said the events are a great opportunity to promote the Top Ends world class seafood to the fly-in fly-out workforce. We have some of the best seafood in the world and we only sell and supply locally sourced fish, prawns, crays and crabs, Mr Ilic said. Residents eat 480 kilograms of prawns, 250 kilograms of bugs and 150 kilograms of scallops along with 700 dozen oysters flown in from South Australia at the monthly event.

Mr Roes business, All Fix Mechanical, has recently secured the contract to service and maintain INPEXs Onshore Operations fleet vehicles. All Fix Mechanical has also maintained fleet vehicles used by the Projects construction workforce. Working with INPEX and the Project has really put our name out there, Mr Roe said. Having the contracts to maintain the fleet vehicles is helping me to sustain my team in quiet times. Mr Roe established All Fix Mechanical in 2008.

Keeping INPEX on the road Promoting the Territorys best seafood Scientific knowledge relating to mangrove management has been boosted significantly thanks to two programs sponsored by the INPEX-led Ichthys LNG Project. Mangroves are vital to the health of our harbour and we collaborated with leading experts to investigate means to reduce the recovery time for disturbed mangroves, INPEX General Manager Darwin Sean Kildare said. Starting in 2014, experts from EcoScience NT used ground breaking techniques to deliver a mangrove reforestation monitoring program for the Ichthys Project. The program focused on 16,000 square metres on Wickham Point that had been cleared for the installation of the Projects gas export pipeline. Darwin Harbour mangroves.
