From Phil Stewman (High School Teacher) from St. Augustine. We have a barge set for a June deployment and plan on building another 300 reef balls this year with my students to bring to a total of 450 balls on our site. We now have 26 balls on site and they are doing wonderful. We have documented the beginnings of many sets of hard coral (Oculina) which is not suppose to happen this far north. I was also surprised to see how many oysters we have at this point. Groupers, Snappers, Triggers, Turtles, and a Nurse shark that has been living in our broken reef ball that we named shark ball because of the way it looked. He has been there for two years, he leaves but always returns to the same ball.
