A Brief History of Artificial Reefs

Florida is the home to a variety of artificial reefs, a man-made underwater structure, many of which were created from ships that were sunk deliberately.  A few of the vessels include, Coast Guard cutters Duane and Bibb, the U.S. Navy landing ship Spiegel Grove, USS Oriskany, and the USNS Hoy S. Vandenberg, a former WWII era troop transport.

Usually, these unique structures are designed to encourage maritime life in sections with featureless bottoms.  Additionally these reefs are used to control erosion, block ships from crossing illegal areas, and to even improve surfing.  Sometimes these projects do not always go as planned.  For instance, in the 1970s, more than 200,000 used tires were dumped off the coast of Fort Lauderdale in order to create an Osborne reef.  However, the tires were not secured properly, causing the strong currents to break the tires loose, thus sending them crashing into the reef and the other marine life around.  In 2009, after 10 years, the project failed when around 100,000 of the tires were removed from the ocean floor.
