Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MS DEQ)
The Mississippi Artificial Reef Habitat project will deploy nearshore artificial reefs in the marine waters of Mississippi. Currently there are 67 existing reef areas that are each approximately 3 acres in size. At present, approximately half of the existing reef areas have a low profile and consist of crushed concrete or limestone. With the proposed project, approximately 100 acres of crushed limestone will be added to the 201-acre footprint of the existing reef areas.
