Reef Balls made by Eternal Reefs

noun - Eternal Reefs is a company that makes Reef Balls where the remains of individuals are stored upon their passing.

Reef Balls are designed to replicate the natural substrata that Mother Nature uses for her reef development. The material is made of natural materials that attract and encourage micro-organisms to settle and propagate on the reefs.

Patented mold systems create reefs that closely mimic natural reef formations. Special design features make it easy for sea life to attach and grow on these designed reef structures.

History[edit]

In 1992, the Reef Ball Development Group and Reef Ball Foundation completed the first reef ball project near Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in the United States. Since then, there have been more than 4,000 projects in more than 70 countries with more than 700,000 reef balls placed on the ocean floor. With years of documented history of stability and habitat development, reef balls have become the world standard for fisheries programs, coral restoration, and habitat development projects.
