Habitats
In the 1990's artificial reefs were situated in Lake Worth Lagoon and overtime these pre-manufactured pyramid modules and concrete beams were covered with corals and sponges. These artificial reefs became new habitat for numerous fish. Lake Worth Lagoon has a series of hard bottom and soft bottom habitats. Some of the hard bottom habitats include artifical reef structures, sunken sail boat, glass bottles, and encrusted shopping carts. Soft bottom habitats include sea grass beds and mangroves.
