Default Navarre Formation Reef UPDATE

The full and Final Permit has been issued, Santa Rosa County has been allocated $1,469,817.00 for both the Snorkeling Reef expansion (fully permitted, 60 additional reefs) and the the Navarre Formation.

Funds have been moved from the DEP to FWC and the reps are in contact with us to start the RFP process. It's getting closer.

At first I thought they were putting a snorkeling reef a mile out.
So, they are putting a reef a mile out in the Gulf maybe suitable for kayak fisherman and expanding the snorkeling reef in the sound ? Am I reading this right ?

Just to be clear:

- The Soundside snorkeling reefs are complete, no additional reefs planned.
- The gulfside snorkeling reefs are going from 30 currently installed to a total of 90. The site will be roughly 100M x 100M, fully permitted
- The Navarre Formation (1x2 Mile) site is fully permitied for a LAARS and funds have transferred to the FWC for execution. The counties in the NRDA Phase III AR sumbmission, Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Bay, Walton. All counties need to go into an RFP process to acquire the reefs and deploy them into the permitted areas. That is current phase we are in with regard to the Navarre Formation in Santa Rosa County.

PM me for any volunteer help - yes we need some and have looked to the GCKFA as the prime area for manpower.

Best,
Stressless
