WHITTIER, Alaska -- Fifty feet down in the cold waters of Smitty's Cove, reef balls were deployed to create fishery habitat.

The federal government required Alaska Marine Lines to mitigate damage the shipping company caused to marine habitat when it filled in tidal waters as part of its container facility expansion last year.

The roughly $100,000 reef project is an effort by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Alaska Marine Lines, the Prince William Sound Science Center, among other entities.
