Fish Reef Project and the Reef Ball Foundation had a splash success at the recent Maritime Alliance summit in San Diego – Reef Ball president, Todd Barber, and Fish Reef Project director, Chris Goldblatt, had a booth and presented slide shows. Support from all sides for making new reefs made a strong showing, including the city and port. San Diego is getting ready to accept larger change in their waters and wants to improve what they call the “Blue Tech Sector” – and Fish Reef Project fits right in!
The Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation has agreed to place 4 balls on their enclosed exhibit near the lagoon.

Also, Local School teachers teachers, Gina Woodard, and Lisa Bertoson have rallied grass roots support to build a reef off of Imperial Beach. An Imperial Beach reef is ideally located to provide vital study opportunity for their amazing and determined students.
