The company has the equipment, space and experience to handle projects like this one. 

The deployment by the 1000 Mermaids Artificial Reef Project in partnership with Palm Beach County's Environmental Resource Management, Reefcells.org and the newly formed ocean Rescue Alliance will grow the existing diving and eco-tourism destination from 18 artificial reef modules to more than 55 tons of ocean friendly concrete to the seafloor.
