excited to forward this announcement regarding building more artificial reefs!
Greetings Brevard Reef Advisory Board Members,
First off I have some great news, we received funding from FWC for next year’s deployment (letter attached). Our grant application got us the points needed and we are set with the funding for another deployment in 2018. I spoke with the FWC program administrator and he said that we made the cut because of extra points for items like advisory boards, such as ours, and because of all of the public support. Please pass word along to everyone in the FSFA, CFOA and CCA thanking them for their letters and emails of support. It is community involvement and support like we received this year that keeps these projects funded and continuing forward.
Also, McCully Marine has been awarded the contract for this year’s project and we expect to be deploying reef modules in about 4 weeks. I will keep you all informed on the final timing.
Thank you all again your time and assistance on these projects.
