An Artificial Reef with mooring function

Habitat moorings provide refuge cavities and tunnels that attract numerous species of fish and crustaceans, plus bio friendly wall surfaces that support myriad aquatic plants. This oasis effect has been extensively documented at two locations on the Maine coast by Christopher Roy, a Graduate Student at The University of Maine.

In a series of dives spanning 2012 and 2013, Chris and his University of Maine colleagues studied Habitat Moorings at Seal Harbor, on Mt. Desert Island, and Sand Cove, near South Bristol. The team catalogued over 50 species of marine animals and plants aggregating on the moorings. Moreover, the Habitat Moorings showed vastly more marine life and biodiversity than control granite moorings that were located nearby.
