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.
