California Ships to Reefs' vision is to establish a regional system of artificial reefs along the California coast to improve and enhance the California fish, plant and marine ecosystem, and to enhance the tourism industry centered on fishing and diving.
"I think reefing ships is a fantastic win/win/win scenario for sport divers, sport fishermen and the environment. Natural wrecks break down into rubble piles over time and though they will continue to attract fish, the bigger the structure the bigger the attraction and the bigger the ecosystem it will hold and or attract." -- Richie Kohler, Advisory Board, Ships to Reefs International
