West Lakes Artificial Reefs

RecFish SA , Charles Sturt University, OzFish and a group of passionate recreational fishers have partnered up for the installation of several artificial reefs into West Lakes Inlet, Adelaide. The project encompasses a new concept and involved the installation of suspended ‘reef tiles’, some of which will be seeded with spat from the native flat oyster (Ostrea angasi). It is anticipated that these floating reef structures, with native flat oysters, will attract a range of fish species, including black bream and mulloway, along with a range of other marine life.
