Artificial Reef Restoration

An artificial reef is a human-made underwater structure, typically built to promote marine life in areas with a generally featureless bottom, to control erosion, or to block ships passage.  Artificial reefs are becoming an important part of our Marine Eco system, supporting numerous amounts of species and also attracting tourism, such as divers and fisherman.  These reefs also get the youth involved and more interested in marine sciences.  At GEEC, this is one of our passions.  The majority of our staff are certified divers and we have partnered up wit non profits such as the CCA to combine our services to try and help build marine habitat in a cost efficient manner.  This in hand with our hydro-survey and GIS capability we can provide accurate maps of the artificial reefs placed.
