"The Department of Fisheries and Oceans has invested $1.7 million to fund an artificial reef project in Miramichi Bay.

Two organizations, Anqotum Resource Management and Homarus Inc., have partnered in the project to help restore coastal habitat along New Brunswick's eastern shore.

Artificial reefs are concrete blocks designed with openings at the bottom to provide shelter for species found on the ocean floor, like lobsters, mussels and rock crabs.

"It essentially allows them to grow up during the phase where they are most at risk of being eaten," DFO Minister Jonathan Wilkinson said."
