Earlier this year, the California Department of Fish & Wildlife and CCA California collaborated on a survey regarding artificial reef usage off the coast of California.
The survey will help the California Department of Fish and Wildlife understand how and why the artificial reefs(excluding jetties, break walls, and piers) are used by the public and qualitatively describe the fishes and invertebrates living on the reef. This survey will also help with the development of the statewide artificial reef plan, and in particular, it will help guide strategies for possible future reef developments in California.
Data collected from this survey will be used in combination with other data streams to provide a better picture of artificial reefs along the California Coast. This survey should only take around five minutes. No personal information will be collected except your home zip code.
