Georgia's Inshore Artificial Reefs

Georgia’s inshore artificial reefs have been constructed in tidal creeks and rivers to address development efforts in response to coastal expansion and a rapidly growing inshore recreational fishery. All fifteen estuarine artificial reefs were created 0-2.5 nm inshore to provide fisheries managers the ability to enhance fisheries resources in estuarine areas lacking suitable habitat and to provide an increase of accessible habitat to coastal anglers. The placement of structures in the intertidal zone also increases the potential for oyster recruitment and shoreline stabilization.
