If you are a diver, you will understand the approach from underwater on a sunken object. "From Relics to Reefs" can be found in the February 2011 issue of National Geographic magazine, on newsstands January 25, 2011Some placed there intentionally and some unintentional. The research is in studying the benefits of such placements and the reasons why. Besides bringing pleasure to divers, artificial reefs aid in building homes and safety stops or stations for nomadic creatures as well as those looking for a safe place to setup residence. They also provide a place for fisherpeople to go to catch bait and to catch prey. The economy prospers wth the increase of sales in sporting goods, fishing and diving, boating rentals, fuel, food, restaurants that buy from local provider and more.
