Artificial reef structures (ARS) or artificial fish habitats (AFH) have been deployed all over the world for various purposes, especially for restoration of habitat and for enhancing fish production. The book Artificial Reef Evaluation with Application to Natural Marine Habitats is a comprehensive multidisciplinary guide to strategies and methods for evaluating performance of artificial reef, especially the much neglected and most important socioeconomic aspects.
