At the 2010 artificial reef summit held in Cocoa Beach, the MBARA was recognized for being one of the most active reef organizations in the state of the Florida.

“We’re active, engaged, we care and we help,” said Cox.

Cox said that current plans were to begin building the 45 reefs by April of next year and have them in the water by August.

In May, the MBARA received a grant from Duke Energy and are currently pursuing opportunities from the Fish America Foundation, Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) and the RESTORE act.
