Artificial Reefs as Fish-Cage Anchors
Field research on models in the Caspian Sea established the possibility of using benthic artificial reefs as mooring devices for suspended cages for fish culture, Preliminary results in 1988–1990 provided information for improved placement of 12 steel and composite-material open-framework reefs in a circular pattern (18 m diameter). Also, measurements of drag, wave loads, and oscillations were recorded. Physical characteristics of the mooring system are provided from tests in which artificial reefs successfully anchored submersible fish culture cages.
