A discussion was held on interested parties expanding the use of artificial reefs at the end of docks. All present were in favor of attracting fish and sea life close to town and within swimming distance from shore. Of course all were also concerned that the areas be well-marked to prevent any boat traffic and that they be located out of boat traffic lanes. There are a few resorts that provide some interesting snorkeling for their guests, and give many tourists and children a chance for their first experience or be able to practice before going out on the reef.

Every dock that has created a artificial reef area near their dock does not allow fishing nor spear fishing. Our Chamber supports this for several reasons. Besides safety, it allows larger fish to remain there as well as avoid hooks and monofilament lines that would be dangerous.

Some of the notable areas already created include: Tradewinds at Paradise Villas, Ramonís, Caribbean Villas, and Amigos del Mar. None of these places allow fishing, and the Chamber fully supports this effort to offer another attraction to our island. We encourage signage to protect these areas, and safety markers to prevent any boat accidents.

Now I understand why fishing licenses will not be required to fish off of a dock, at least not in Sanpedro wink
