Let the Mini Reef bring your waters to life by providing a nursery habitat to help hundreds of native fish and crabs grow up.

Marine life will begin living in and around the Mini Reefs as soon as they are placed in the water. Each Mini Reef can support hundreds of fish, crabs and shrimp living in and around it each year. Fish we have found utilizing these habitats are Groupers, Snook, Red and Black Drum, several types of Snapper, Grunts, Mullet, Barracuda, Whiting and many more. The Mini Reefs are also home to Stone Crabs, Blue Crabs, Shrimp and Spiny Lobsters. Just imagine your children, family and friends seeing a thriving community of marine life swimming in the waters around your dock.

Each Mini Reef will filter over 30,000 gallons of water on average per day once fully developed and will help improve the marine environment substantially. Water quality will improve as the animals on the Mini Reefs begin to remove the over abundance of plankton in the water. 

In addition to the increase in marine life around your Mini Reef you may see larger fish, birds and marine mammals like dolphins visiting your property after the Mini reef System is installed.  A small local food chain will develop and your property can become an oasis to the life in the area.  

Mini Reef, pictured below, is estimated to last for 75 years and acts as Nature’s kidney’s filtering 30,000 gallons of water per day. Once fully established, the Mini Reef will support 300 fish and 200 crabs per year.

Each Mini Reef is approximately 3'x2'x2' in size and floats at the surface even after development. It floats so the filter feeders attached to the unit will always be where 90% of their food source is found within 24" of the water surface.

The Rotary Clubs of Englewood, Venice-Nokomis and Venice Sunrise Mini Reef Regeneration Project aims to regenerate our coastal waters, improve water quality, and re-establish a juvenile fish nursery and a sea life habitat, one dock at a time, through the installation of Mini Reefs. The cost of each Mini Reef is $300 and includes tax and installation.
