Abstract

The purpose of this position statement is to guide the evaluation of artificial reef proposals in the Great Lakes so that any reefs built will enhance the fisheries and recreational uses of the lakes without adversely affecting natural resources or impeding other beneficial uses. This position statement sets minimum recommended standards for evaluating artifical reef proposals and lists the factors that should be considered in planning artificial reefs. Other relevant lists are summarized. The Great Lakes jurisdictions are encouraged to incorporate the elements of this position statement, as a minimum, into their own policy. In lieu of official policy development the jurisdictions and agencies are encouraged to use the position statement and accompanying guidelines when reviewing artificial reef proposals.
