Marco Island has started a trend and the rest of Florida is starting to follow our ideas. A few local residents started installing "mini-reefs" under docks in the canal systems on the island in an attempt to attract fish and provide fish habitat.  It has worked and there are fish enjoying their new homes.

News has spread about the success of these mini-reefs and the installation of the reefs are now in 20 coastal cities around Florida.  NOAA is looking at installing these mini-reefs throughout the Florida Keys as a way to help restore the fish populations and water quality.
