Artificial Reef

Inshore Reefs

Mississippi’s 67 inshore artificial reefs are comprised of several different types of material for development including crushed concrete, limestone, and oyster shell. The development of these reefs has diversified habitat and increased high quality fishing sites which has proven in the past to support a great ecosystem for Mississippi's inshore reefs. These artificial reefs provide the preponderance of both vertical relief and hard substrate for a variety of fish and invertebrate species. inshore-reefs-top-photo
