The reef shown below is the evolution of years of developing artificial reefs. While all our reefs have alternate substrate, we discovered what a lot of marine scientists already knew; the best artificial reef material is natural soft rock. Here on the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coasts, Florida Limestone rock, comprised of ancient clam shells, is the perfect substrate for marine life.
Our Affiliate, Walter Marine/Reefmaker (www.reefmaker.net
and patented the process of
attaching soft rock to a concrete
structure. This produces a reef
where the overall surface area of
the rocks greatly exceed the
surface area of the concrete
structure, therefore attracting and
providing habitat for all marine life
associated with the natural reefs
in the area, including boring
animals, never before seen on a
manufactured artificial reef.
