The placement of the artificial reef will provide hard surfaces which will attract algae and invertebrates such as barnacles, muscles and corals. The presence of these basic forms of marine life will draw in larger marine creatures as they start feeding on the other inhabitants. The structure of the artificial reef will provide an excellent habitat and act as a nursery for many fish species.
The chosen location for the artificial reef has a bottom composition of sand and pebbles and is a fairly featureless.
Depositing the artificial reef will cause some damage to a small area of the existing featureless seabed.
The artificial reef will provide a huge amount of prime marine 'real estate' that is ideal for habitation by a host of different marine species.
