A Practical Guide to the Construction and Management of Artificial Reefs in Northwestern Australia

This manual has been developed to share the experiences of Rio Tinto and MScience in planning, designing, permitting, constructing and monitoring an artificial reef within an active harbour area of the Port of Dampier, Western Australia. The purpose of the guide is not to promote the construction of artificial reefs per se, but to inform companies or entities who may be considering constructing an artificial reef. Although most specific examples in this document relate to the Dampier artificial reef, the implications should be relevant throughout northwestern Australia.
