While artificial reefs are popular with divers and fishermen, they are not without their detractors. Some, such as the Ocean Conservancy, oppose their construction, contending that they exacerbate problems with overfishing by concentrating large populations of fish in one area. In addition, they argue that there are too many question marks as to the effect these structures have on the marine environment.
