Miami-Dade County Artificial Reef Program
Find out about the latest deployments to the Artificial Reefs network within Miami-Dade County.
More specific information on any of these new deployments (actual orientation of each vessel on the bottom, confirmed depth(s), confirmed center point GPS coordinates, relief or profile - height of structure off the bottom - and digital underwater photos of the ships) from the diving community would be greatly appreciated. Please contact the Artificial Reef Program through email.
Phase 1 of the Artificial Reef Connectivity Project is complete
With partial funding from a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Grant, four connection artificial reefs were constructed utilizing limerock boulders and donated concrete from July 11-20, 2011. Two of these reefs are located in the inshore Mercy Artificial Reef Site and connect existing concrete and limerock artificial reefs. The other two connection reefs are located in the offshore Key Biscayne Special Management Zone.
The connection reefs at this site are part of the larger Belzona Wreck Trek and connect the Belzona II tug to the Belcher Barge and the Belcher Barge to the Parker-Schurger Barge complex. These new reefs will provide habitat connection for marine organism, additional fishing spots and a visual trail for divers to follow to enjoy the reefs.
