The first public underwater park with artificial reefs in Crete will be established in a coastal, sandy area of 30000 m2 protected from the wave action and it will be entirely dedicated to sport recreational diving (marine tourism). It is located 2 Km north from the city of Agios Nikolaos, Crete. The idea is to create an artificial Park for diving in order to "relieve" neighboring areas of major natural importance from severe disturbance mainly by sport diving (and fishing). My team has undertaken on behalf of Lasithi Prefecture (East Crete) In 2006, Kostas DounasI got the final license by the Greek State for the use of 26000 m2 of seabed (water column included) in an area (18-22m deep) located offshore less than 1 km from the Institute's Research premises in Gournes for the development of the "Underwater Technological Park of Crete"
