2022 - We want a reef 2.5 miles off of Cocoa Beach!
The Central Florida Offshore Anglers (CFOA) and Florida Sport Fishing Association (FSFA) are collecting funds on behalf of the Space Coast Artificial Reef Advisory Board (SCARAB) for the creation of a nearshore artificial reef in the Atlantic Ocean within Florida State waters approximately 2.5 miles off of Cocoa Beach Pier. This Brevard County nearshore reef will be easily accessible by smaller boats, and a place where snapper, grouper, flounder and other reef fish could thrive. This nearshore reef will fall within the State of Florida FWC fishing regulations.

Reid Reef Deployed Successfully on Sept. 30th.
We had a great weather window for the deployment of Reid Reef on Sept. 30th. This is our 5th artificial reef deployment in as many years. It is about 15 miles due east of Port Canaveral. The modules provide 8 to 10 feet of relief and will quickly bolster the benthic and pelagic species in the area. Here are some pics for the deployment. When we get the final coordinates, we'll post them in the members only section of the site.
