Artificial reefs are man-made underwater structures that provide habitat for many types of fishes. Fishes are attracted towards artificial reefs because the reefs shelter the fish from predators and make good feeding sites. The creation of man-made structures to enhance marine resources is the basis of a specialised branch of marine technology known as artificial reef development.
