Description: Technical note
Problem: Rubble structures are frequently located within estuarine and coastal systems; however, only a limited amount of information exists on the biological effects of such structures. Coastal structures may result in changes in wave and current patterns, sedimentation patterns and habitat types. These changes in turn affect aquatic biological communities. This note provides information for an environmental assessment of these biological effects.
