MARS - Modular Artificial Reef Structure 

MARS was designed by Alex Goad in 2013 specifically to assist with the coral farming industry. Its ceramic surface is designed to house transplanted corals. Transplanted corals can be continually divided as they grow and eventually transplanted back to natural reefs. 

The system has won multiple awards and was recently installed on Summer Island in the Maldives to assist with their coral farm. 

MARS is an ongoing project, for more information go to: or contact Alex directly via email.
