TPWD Corpus Christi Nearshore Reefing Site Undergoes Beginning Stages

By October 8, 2013News, Projects

The latest CCA Texas Habitat Today for Fish Tomorrow (HTFT) project is the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s (TPWD) Corpus Christi Nearshore Reefing site. The project involves pyramids that are being deployed in Corpus Christi. They are currently staged, and once the first load of concrete materials are deployed, the pyramids – which CCA Texas helped pay for – will go out next. There are 470 pyramids, and these will be deployed offshore in a TPWD permitted reefing site.

This site is located within Texas state waters approximately 11 miles from the Packery Channel Jetties and 12 miles from the Port Aransas Jetties. These pyramids along with other materials deployed will provide critical marine habitat for marine species, in particular red snapper and other fish species that are sought by recreational fishermen. This is going to be a great fishing spot filled with marine life, easily accessible for recreational fishermen who want to fish offshore.
