Wreck Preservation

We have experts working with us to place cathodic protection on wrecks to slow the corrosion process. This process has two major purposes:

  1. It slows the corrosion process so historic wrecks that provide a unique dive experience will last longer. This has some clear economic benefits for community economies.
  2. It promotes vigorous coral growth. This is a by-product; the anodes placed on a wreck slow the corrosion through an electrolytc process. This same process causes rapid and lush coral growth.
