'Life on an Un-fished Artificial Reef' topic of Feb. 20 Charleston program

The Coastal Exploration Series continues this spring with a seminar featuring marine life on an un-fished artificial reef to be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20 at the Marine Resources Center Auditorium on James Island in Charleston.

The seminar titled "Life on an Un-fished Artificial Reef" is the second event to be hosted in the S.C. Department of Natural Resources' (DNR) Coastal Exploration Series spring lineup of free opportunities for the public. Biologist Mike Arendt will discuss changes in the seasonal and annual occurrence of different species of fish at a small, un-fished artificial reef. This presentation will feature video clips that document the potential of remote underwater video to study marine life under natural conditions, as well as demonstrate the importance of oceanic conditions in determining the ability to observe, and perhaps catch some fishes.

The spring events span from February through May. The public is encouraged to register through the DNR online calendar. Online registration is available 30 days prior to each scheduled event and reservations are required for all of the events.

DNR protects and manages South Carolina’s natural resources by making wise and balanced decisions for the benefit of the state’s natural resources and its people.
