Abstract: Artificial reefs are seen as effective tools to enhance the marine environment and increase productivity, particularly fish biomass and abundance. Many Southeast Asian countries have implemented artificial reef programmes. When effectively managed, artificial reefs enhance habitats and biological productivity. Management includes proper planning on the use and configuration of materials, site selection, and regulatory control of fisheries harvest. Without planning and long-term management, artificial reefs fail and become nothing more than pollutants that contribute to the further degradation of the marine environment.
