Artificial Reef Ecosystems of British Columbia

Part of: Emerging Ecology Research Series

Course description

What happens when a ship sinks to the bottom of the ocean and Mother Nature is left to take over?

This course introduces students to artificial reefs, their uses, and potential to provide habitat for marine life. We will look at a local example in the form of shipwrecks and become familiar with their inhabitants. We will discuss the potential costs and benefits of using artificial reefs locally to replace natural habitat. This course provides some basic fish and invertebrate identification skills allowing students to learn about ecosystems that are usually out of sight. Come to class prepared to see lots of underwater photos and videos! No prior marine biology knowledge is required.
