SALVORS AS THE ULTIMATE ENVIRONMENTALISTS
Protection of the marine environment is an important component of a salvor’s everyday life. They are the ultimate environmentalists. By keeping pollutants contained in a stricken vessel, a significant portion of the environmental impact is removed. If contained, and subsequently removed with the vessel, a pollutant carried by a stricken vessel cannot impact the environment.
Based upon recent studies conducted on the issue of clean up versus remediation, it seems clear that the cost to the public of removing the oil from the wreckage now, while it is still contained, is significantly less than the costs incurred if the oil is allowed to escape into the sensitive marine environment with the attendant impact to natural resources, sea life, as well as the significant economic losses suffered by seaside communities as a result of beach closings and related consequences.Read More

Artificial Reef: Florida has one of the most active artificial reef programs among the 14 Gulf and Atlantic states involved in this activity. The Florida artificial reef program is the only state program besides Maryland that is not exclusively run at a state agency level where the state holds all the reef area permits. Because of the extent of coastline and statewide involvement in reef activities, the FWC program continues as a cooperative partnership started twenty-five years ago with local coastal county governments. Today some local coastal cities, universities, and qualified non-profit corporations also work directly with the FWC in artificial reef development and monitoring activities.
The purpose of creating an artificial reef is to benefit the environment by enhancing aquatic habitat and marine resources, as well as providing an option for conserving, managing, and developing fisheries resources.
Artificial reefs are complex marine projects that require completion on schedule, on budget (with no change orders), and most importantly with no impacts to marine resources. Reef construction requires innovative construction methodologies due to the sensitive marine enviroment.
Associated Marine Salvage, Inc. has the expertise and resources required to handle the most demanding projects of this kind. AMSI can provide guidance from the inception of the project all the way through the development of the reef. Including working with government and private funding.
