We will create a reef superhighway from Florida to Texas optimized for proximity and industry to minimize costs. Our reef plan includes innovations and new designs across multiple dimensions of the project including location, reef structures, food chain, nursery, materials and more. Below are some of the highlights of the project:

Our current reef selection plan is optimized for cost and marine ecosystem conditions. We will leverage existing infrastructure such as rig platforms as well as other aggregates. We intend to create a “superhighway” of marine life and reefs spanning from Texas and Louisana to Florida. Our phase one reefs will focus on locations outside of Tampa Bay and other areas along the Florida coast as well as attention to Tampa and Sarasota Bays themselves. Location plans will be based on simulation and economic modeling to optimize the outcomes and streamline development times.

We will be designing novel reef structure solutions that can be used in conjunction existing structure already in our oceans. The structures will be designed with each trophic level of the food chain in mind. Structures will also be designed and placed in regions that will optimize growth of the reefs using the latest research findings on CO2 levels and other dimensions of biological profile.

We will develop a sustainable feed stock for our reef structures. This includes both inland and ocean-based solutions. Innovations in bio-diversity and engineering will include value-engineered solutions to minimize cost and propagate coral and feeder stock which in turn will be the base of our food chain.

Our reef program will include an inland nursery on the Tampa Bay coastline within close proximity to Tampa Bay ports. This R&D facility will allow accelerated population development for our closely monitored reefs. The nursery will also be value engineered as a blueprint for future nurseries across the gulf coast and beyond.

Certain types of materials contain beneficial pH balances and other characteristics that are conducive to coral and marine life growth. We will be working with heavy industry in U.S. Gulf States to leverage existing waste aggregates and engineer new low-cost solutions to provide the foundation for our reef structures. 

Getting materials to sea and the proximity of our structures are crucial for economic feasibility of the program. In addition to leveraging existing structures, we will be working on new innovative methods to deliver materials to reef locations. This may also include working with freight carriers on “dead-head” legs of journeys.


The numbers and projections are staggering yet this story is largely untold. If we continue on our current path we will cause a collapse in the marine ecosystem. Project Genesis exists because the worst thing we can do is ignore these warning signs. Our oceans sequester 93% of carbon and create 60% of oxygen in our atmosphere. A healthy marine ecosystem is essential to our way of life and our planets future. As human populations grow we must innovate ways to work with mother nature not against her. Our current path is not sustainable:..
