Project Description

The Gulf Consortium, through its subrecipient, Pasco County, will complete a deployment of up to 500 tons of material to augment the current reef known as Pasco Reef #4 located approximately 12 miles west of Hudson Beach, FL. The County has completed a reef permit for the site and is awaiting funding necessary to move the materials to the reef. Completion of this deployment will increase the size of the existing artificial reef and benefit users of the artificial reefs offshore for recreational activities such as fishing, diving and spearfishing.
