Abstract:
North Carolina has used a variety of materials to make artificial reefs, such as sinking old ships or dumping thousands of rubber tires. Over 650,000 tires were dumped, but the problem with them was the tires lasted longer than the material tying them down, instead of the other way around. The result was that over 100,000 washed up on the beaches. Allegood reports on the state's new approach--placing concrete pieces and artificial reef balls in targeted areas, like the estuaries.

Abstract:
In the early part of the 20th-century, harvests of a million bushels of oysters were common along the state's shoreline. However, over-harvesting, destruction of habitats, disease, pollution, and sediment from runoff have taken a toll on the native oyster population. Restoration efforts have been ongoing for many years. Smith discusses a monitoring program, the Statewide Oyster Spat Monitoring Project, which was the brainchild of Tony Alphin of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
