Broward County Reef Balls


In August of 1994, six molds were obtained with a DEP grant administered by the Brevard County Solid Waste Department of $25,000 to build a Reef Ball (tm) artificial reef in Brevard County, Florida. The Central Florida NAUI Chapter, an association of dive instructors, led the project and got volunteers from the community, the county Artificial Reef Coordinator, Florida Institute of Technology (FIT), the Space Coast Marine Institute, Saltwater News, CFOA (Central Florida Offshore Anglers), and several fishing tournaments to help. On May 4th, 70 Reef Balls were put down. By July of 1995, over 150 Reef Balls had been placed 16 miles offshore. With cooperation from the Brevard County Solid Waste Program, future grants are being applied for to continue the program. FIT, under direction from Prof. Lee Harris, P.E. is continuing a monitoring program. (Reef 2 at Loran 43860.0 & 61921.0 Reef 1 at Loran 43865.1 & 61926.7 or Lat 2823.500 Long 8017.500 ) On 10/10/95 Wilson Love of Saltwater New reported that lane snapper are schooling around the reef.
