In the late summer of 2000, scientists deployed one hundred five reef balls at three sites on Oculina Banks to determine if the artificial structures could help to re-establish fish habitat that was once provided by Oculina coral heads. A year later, during the Islands in the Stream, South Atlantic Bight Expedition, scientists are encouraged to see fish beginning to aggregate near them.
