Surveying Artificial Reefs with a SeaBat T51

9/13/2023

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Artificial reefs make a great playground to produce stunning data when passed over with a SeaBat T51 at 800 kHz. But aside from that they have a more meaningful purpose.

Artificial reefs allow for sea life to recover from a decline in habitat. These reefs act as a recruitment, growth and resting zone for fish species and other sea life.  Artificial reef structures come in all shapes and sizes; giving species places to hide, allowing to live off the seafloor from predatory species, or providing a substrate to grow on. Nurseries like these have proven to promote the growth of species and increase diversity in challenged habitats.​​
