The Ocean City Reef Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works to enhance the marine habitat through the creation and monitoring of artificial reef systems. The organization places artificial reefs on the ocean floor to create a marine habitat. Growth on the reefs begins almost immediately, with mussels and coral becoming encrusted and serving as a food source and shelter for a variety of marine life. In addition to enhancing and preserving the aquatic ecosystem to ensure future generations will be able to enjoy the beautiful natural resource, the Ocean City Reef Foundation’s efforts help create improved fisheries and diving opportunities to grow the area’s eco-tourism industry.
