When we first started developing the EcoSystems it was just another reef. However; over time we expanded them into: wave attenuation, snorkeling reefs, oyster reef restoration, mitigation, personal dock reef, coral reef restoration, and is also used as a research tool. The design allows small marine animals to seek shelter and protection from larger predators. They are ideal for defusing wave energy and protecting shorelines. EcoSystems can be placed in high-wave energy areas without concern for storm event damage. The Florida Limestone rock we use replicates natural reef substrate and PH levels. The piling mount system allows the unit to remain upright and not sink into the bottom. EcoSystems can be configured for any depth, shape, size, or complexity.
