By virtue of strong economic justification, the practice in the artificial reef technology in Japan has outstripped the development of its scientific rationales. More than 100 varieties of reef module have been introduced, some measuring up to 11 m in height and up to 70 tons in weight. Artificial reefs are made of diverse materials including plastic, used tires, and steel, as well as concrete. This paper discusses the state of the art and the extent of scientific rationales which could be applied to fishing reef practices, including as key topics: the cause of fish aggregation to reefs, fish tracking study, reef density, reef life cycle, and reef deployment.
