Fish populations around reefs deployed by the City of Mexico Beach and the MBARA, as well as others in the local area, are monitored on a regular basis.
Pre-deployment surveys as required by the State to assure that a proposed reef site is suitable are performed.
We also have formed important relationships with the Florida Wildlife Commission and Florida Artificial Reef Program personnel with the goal of exchanging information that will benefit the public and the marine environment at large. Using this knowledge, we can make informed choices that provide the most environmental and recreational benefit for each public and private dollar spent.
