Offshore Reefs

The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources in conjunction with Mississippi Gulf Fishing Banks has 15 permitted offshore reef sites. The sites combined cover approximately 16,000 acres, with sites ranging from 8 to 10,000 acres. The sites located north of the barrier islands consist of concrete rubble while the sites located south of the barrier islands consist of concrete culverts, steel hull vessels, and "Florida Limestone" artificial reef pyramids. offshore-reefs-top-photo
