Artificial reefs

Does anyone know where I might find definitive studies on the practice of artificial reefs? I am curious as to whether long term studies on the affects, be it positive or negative have been carried out. Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Artificial Reef Building

You have hit on a subject near and dear to my heart. I have been active in a reef building organization for 10 years. In that time the Gulf of Mexico, off Mexico Beach, FL, went from a sand desert with a few isolated reefs, to a thriving marine community with almost 200 artificial reefs. We have posted a few pdf documents on Artificial Reef studies on our web site. You can also view our surveys, photos, and videos. If our program wasn't working, I would not dedicate so much of my time to it. This link should take you directly to the page with the research material. http://www.mbara.org/reef-education.cfm. Let me know if I can do anything else to help. ~Carol
