ASME STS - October 16, 2014 - "Artificial Reefs, Wave Attenuators and Marine Ecosystems"
SPEAKER - David Walter, Walter Marine  Orange Beach, AL


The "Reefmaker" of Walter Marine deployed its first artificial reef in 1986. Today it is the largest reef builder in the United States. The Reefmaker has deployed over 35,000 artificial reefs and owns four patents. Research has proven our artificial reef units outperform all others in natural substrate, complexity/rugosity, durability, size, production of fish, estuary substitute and wave attenuation.

Over the years artificial reefs have evolved drastically. Today's artificial reef systems are designed for specific tasks such as: species habitat, wave attenuation, oyster restoration, estuary enhancement, coral reef repair, recreational diving, fishing reefs, fishery management, barriers to protect endangered habitat, snorkeling reefs and as integral parts of pier construction.


David Walter, Owner of Walter Marine in Orange Beach, AL  got started in the yacht repair business 45 years ago, after attending Faulkner University in the early 1970's.  His business later evolved into marine salvage and in recent years, he developed artificial (man-made) marine reefs.  

He has multiple patents on artificial reefs ranging from 6 ft.  25 ft. and weighing up to 18 tons.  He has manufactured and deployed more artificial reefs (+37,000, and 14 ships) around the world, than any other entity.  He is also a private pilot in addition to being a licensed ship operator/captain.
