Description: Technical note
Problem: Comprehensive environmental assessments of coastal engineering projects evaluate beneficial as well as detrimental impacts. In the case of rubble-mound structures (e.g., jetties, groins, breakwaters, etc.), one beneficial aspect of construction is the creation of artificial reef habitat. This is evidenced by the popularity of coastal rubble-mound structures as recreational fishing spots. Few studies, however, have examined the utilization patterns of these structures as shelter, foraging, spawning, or nursery habitat by fish and invertebrate populations. Consequently, a lack of documentation of beneficial impacts of rubble-mound structures exists.
