      What are the dimensions of the coastline of Saibai? How deep is the water immediately off the island, and the depth of the water where they are currently planted?

      Thanks in advance!

        Hi Rowena,

        Saibai’s coastline stretches approximately 15kms. The depth of water immediately off the island varies with tidal changes, rainfall patterns, time of the year etc. But Saibai is in shallow waters and depth could be less than 10 mts at low tide and more than 30 mts at high tide. It is difficult to ascertain the plantation depth of the coastal mangroves, but my guess estimate would be between 7 mts to 25 mts.
