“Within the framework of our project, a new habitat was created under the water. We saw that very valuable fish species settled in the region where there was no trace of life before. Sea creatures are looking for a safe habitat for themselves. It has been determined that the fish have started to lay their eggs in the new habitat created. These developments give us hope for the future of our district, Karataş, the pearl of the Mediterranean.
Finally, by receiving this award on behalf of all Karataş people, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this evaluation.” said.
