Lee County


2004 in a news article ….

  ” With the attitude of “why buy the cow if the milk’s free?” county marine biologist Chris Koepfer decided to test the expensive Reef Balls against reefs made from donated material.

“I’ve been satisfied with how the donated material performs,” he said. “I really want to compare Reef Balls, which cost a lot of money, to material that doesn’t cost money to see if there is a corresponding increase in productivity.

“These things better show me a factor of 10 improvement over the other stuff.”

…Using state and federal grants, which cost Lee County taxpayers nothing, Koepfer bought 24 5-feet-tall, 2-ton Reef Balls and 60 that are 3 feet tall and 1 ton.

His idea was to create four “patch reefs,” each with six large modules surrounded by 16 small modules.
