A mooring that creates artificial reef

The Habitat Mooring is constructed of cast concrete, with built-in tunnels. These openings provide shelters that are highly attractive to a wide range of marine life, including lobsters, crabs and a variety of fin fish.

A mooring that’s cost competitive

Each Habitat Mooring is poured with high density, fiber reinforced concrete. The hitch rod is 1.25" diameter steel rod that is easily removed for chain attachment. This eliminates the cost of a shackle, as well as a standard horseshoe staple

First deployment at Seal Harbor, Maine

Working with Mt. Desert Harbormaster Shawn Murphy and Matt Knox of Alvah B. Barge Company, the Habitat Mooring team deployed the first mooring in late July, 2010. The mooring was donated to the town of Mt. Desert to moor the NO WAKE buoy at the entrance to Seal Harbor. Follow-up dives to the mooring by Shawn Murphy in September and October revealed a diversity of marine life aggregating in and around the mooring, including schools of pollack and mackerel, juvenile flounder, crabs, lobsters, shrimp and and lump fish.

Matt Knox readies Habitat Mooring at low tide, adjacent Seal Harbor Town Dock.  At next high tide, he hoisted mooring onto barge Alvah B for deployment.
