Florida Keys Community College: Local Educational and Research Resource

Docks at FKCC Lagoon

The Vandenberg Artificial Reef project is already providing an important educational resource in Key West and the keys. Florida Keys Community College will coordinate monitoring programs to determine the effects of the artificial reef on the marine environment, and on diving and fishing use patterns. Initial monitoring is already taking place to provide a scientifically documented "Before" picture of the area where the reef will be placed and surrounding natural reef areas
