Artificial Reef Seminar
Learn about building, fishing, diving and monitoring the artificial reefs off the coast of Volusia County. The Volusia County Marine Science Center has partnered with the Halifax Sportfishing Club and Volusia County Reef Research Dive Team to host an Artificial Reef Seminar which is open to the public.
“The goal is to educate anyone who is interested about the county’s marine wildlife and artificial fishing reef system,” said County Coastal Division Director Joe Nolin. “The reef system is an economic engine for the regional marine industry and an amazing ecological resource.”
The seminar will cover the benefits, design and construction of artificial reefs; the basics of fishing artificial reefs including preparation, locating the reefs, and proper anchoring and fishing techniques; how to dive artificial reefs; and how to help monitor the growth and development of the reef over time.
