MBARA Deploys New Reefs

Published: Thursday, April 11, 2013 at 08:54 AM.

Older reefs were often made with lighter or smaller materials that could be moved by powerful storms or covered by sand.

The deployment was overseen by Bill Horn of the FWC along with MBARA volunteers Bob and Carol Cox, Ron Childs, Jimmy Nicholson, and Captain Charlene Burke.  MBARA volunteers were involved in every step of the artificial reef deployment--applying for permits, writing grants, and raising matching funds to earn points when competing for grants. 

According to Horn, “Excellent planning by MBARA and excellent execution by Walter Marine” made the project a great success.
