Over the past few years Cyprus has been sinking ships in order to create artificial reefs. The need for this initiative has been the dwindling fish stocks around the island.
The project is being financed to a great extent by the EU fisheries programme which has been running from 2007. Funding for the first reef was supported by the programme. Contributions to the project have been made by the Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) and the Cyprus Dive Centre Association.
In August last year The Fisheries Department produced a film about the Artificial Reefs, and Jonathan do the English voice over!!
