Artificial reef information

Alabama and Florida are the only states where it is legal to build private artificial reefs.

Florida Special Reef

Over 10' tall with a 12' triangular base and have heavy steel panels (3/4 to 1 inch) fitted to the sides. With 800 square feet of surface area and a weight of over 5,000 lbs., this tetrahedron concrete frame is one of the strongest structures known and has withstood several hurricanes. Designed with a large footprint to prevent sinking or subsiding, it's expected to last 50 to 2000 years (depending on which engineer you ask). These artificial reefs produce approximately 500 lbs. of American Red Snapper per year. 

Florida Limestone Reef

The 8' Florida Limestone artificial reef is a 6,000 lb. concrete structure built to withstand storm events. It has a 10' footprint designed to prevent settling and scouring. The limestone rock gives it a greater surface area and complexity which attracts marine life.

GROUPER REEF

The grouper reef is designed as a grouper habitat. It is proven that grouper prefer a cave or ledge to dwell in. The grouper reef is 5 ft. x 10 ft. wide and 3 ft. tall. It has a special flanged base to help prevent sinking into the sand or the seafloor. Florida limestone rock is embedded into the top of the structure to add complexity.

All reefs are made by a local reef maker in Orange Beach, AL.
