The Fish Reef Project

The mission of the Fish Reef Project is to Help Ocean Life Thrive™. We will accomplish this goal by creating a global network of designed reefs. The reefs will stimulate all manner of marine life and help the seafloor recover thousands of acres of silted-in, dead or dying reefs in tropical and temperate marine ecosystems. Learn about The Science.

  • Turning This ...

  • ... Into This!

The Fish Reef Project is the next great ocean enhancement and restoration project which will turn empty seafloor into thriving marine ecosystems which 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 that we can all benefit from 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 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 in a check.
