Subcon Solution

DPIRD approached Subcon for an artificial reef solution off Hillarys
to be used for recreational purposes including fishing and diving.

This region is predominately sand with no structure for marine life to congregate to.

Our team designed the artificial reef solution with the following key features:

  • We included 220 Bombora and 72 Apollo concrete modules that encompass an area of 200m x 400m, made up of 344m3 of artificial reef modules.
  • The reefs field layout was installed in an orientation that aligned with the coast’s predominately acting surface current directions. This layout was adopted so while you fished the reef the boat would drift with the current along the corridors of the reef.
