The Fish Reef Project is the next great ocean enhancement and restoration project which will turn empty seafloors into thriving marine ecosystems which will be home and 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 over fishing 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 that we can all benefit from and they require no heavy enforcement or use of public funds or resources to maintain. The entire Fish Reef Project operation is carbon negative due to marine life sinking carbon and fisheries removing the need for land based protein, which emit carbon and agricultural runoff.

It is the goal of the Fish Reef Project to create a global fish reef system. To make this a reality, we do need community support and donations.  If you would like to help ocean life thrive and leave a lasting positive legacy on this planet please reach out to us and make a donation online or mail a check direct to our office.
