20th Year Anniversary Celebration in 2016
The MBARA will begin its 20th year in 2016, and it will be a special year.   We are scheduled to put out approximately 1.5 million dollars worth of reefs in 2016 to go along with our already 2.0 million dollars worth already deployed.  We will begin deploying in February or March with our $85,000 FWC grant project followed by our $1,374,185.28 NRDA project to construct at total of 78 reefs.

This is truly an amazing feat with an all volunteer army working to establish more marine habitat, conduct research, and educate the public.   The MBARA rocks!

Our new 2016 t-shirt will be a special Guy Harvey kingfish print done just for the MBARA, and it is something special.   We hope to have this one of a kind shirt out by February or March.   We all thank Guy Harvey and his organization for all they do for so many organizations around the globe. 

 

2016 Kingfish Tournament on August 27, 2016
The 2016 Kingfish Tournament is already being planned,  and it will be super.   We will have new raffle items, a new Miss Kingfish, and more vendors coming to tell you about their new products.  Our door prizes will be better than ever.  Put us on your schedule.
