The Fish Reef Project

The Fish Reef Project is the next great ocean enhancement and restoration movement. The Fish Reef Project will turn empty seafloor into thriving marine ecosystems that will be home, breeding and feeding grounds to millions of marine mammals, sea birds, turtles, fish, lobster, abalone, scallops, marine algae and much more.

The Fish Reefs will reduce pressure on natural reefs, thus reducing overfishing while helping to restore damaged natural reef systems. The Fish Reefs are designed to enhance marine life, provide study, eco-tour and fishing opportunities for everyone. The Fish Reefs are a triple net positive in that they quickly increase marine life abundance, they unite the ocean community to a single common cause from which we can all benefit and they require no heavy enforcement or use of public funds or resources to maintain.

It is the goal of the Fish Reef Project to create a five-acre fish reef within 10 miles of several harbors in Southern California within the next three to five years. To make this a reality, we need community support and donations. So if you would like to help make the ocean better and leave a lasting positive legacy on this planet, please reach out and make a donation online or mail in a check. Together, we can help ocean life thrive.
