This fan shaped man-made formation is a reef coral mining operation. This is off the mangrove area off the Ohwa coast on Pohnpei. The coral is mined to supply infill for road-beds and other construction projects. There are alternative natural resources, like rock. Fishing is on the decline off these reefs in the Pohnpei atol and this fragile fishing eco-system is in jeopardy.
