Garrett Stuart installs artificial mini-reefs along Florida’s Coastline. The artificial mini-reefs he helps install clean millions of gallons of water every year and give marine life a place to call home.
Stuart’s nickname is ‘Caption Planet’ thanks to his willingness to help keep the environment clean. Stuart told Fox 13 that the mini-reefs are “universally tested and proven to filter an average of 30,000 gallons of water every single day, and an average of 300 fish and 200 crabs per year that they house.”
The mini-reefs help fight against blooms of the red tide organism karenia brevis. Garrett said the marine life that grows on the reefs literally eats algae, and they eat the red tide.
He recently installed mini-reefs under the dock at the Pelican Alley restaurant in Nokomis, and crabs have already moved in.
