SG Artificial House Reef
The Sea Gypsy Artificial House Reef is a testament to how simple and cheap it can be to help our marine ecology. We started in '96 when we renewed our water towers. We used old fishing nets and natural fibre to tie coconuts onto the old towers. We sank them just off shore and marked them with a buoy. Subsequently whenever we have anything of interest from an old boat hull to old toilet bowls we tie them down in the same way. For the next year our diving instructor took the food waste from the kitchen and fed the growing fish life. The reef is now self sustaining, although it takes quite a bashing every December & January during north east monsoon, and a source of great pride.
