Artificial reefs to protect the ocean floor

For years now, people have been dumping concrete blocks and all sorts of man-made structures into the ocean. Their goal? Creating new reefs and encouraging marine life. 🐠

    I was told you could have your cremains mixed with the special cement, they then put a small brass plaqette on it and drop it to the ocean floor. I love that idea!!!!

    Coral bits even grow at several orders of magnitude faster when they’ve been broken off a parent plant and fastened somewhere new. It takes a lot of the wait time out of growing new reefs because you can plant 50 pieces of a single coral at various locations rather than 50 separate individual new corals that’ll take decades to get anywhere.

    It won't work. You need to grow natural one.

    A wonderful thought, but its man's manipulation of nature that causes so much damage to this planet and its other inhabitants. How can further manipulation be justified? What harm will harm will come of this in the future. The road to Hell is paved with good intentions, I believe, is what they say...

    Remind me please - what is causing sea levels to rise along with land reclamation?
