At their April 10 meeting, the Louisiana Artificial Reef Council approved lifting the Louisiana Artificial Reef Program’s moratorium on new proposals to create Special Artificial Reef Sites (SARS). The Council originally enacted this moratorium in 2008.

The Council also approved revisions to the Louisiana Artificial Reef Plan’s Amendment II (the “SARS” Amendment), intended to improve the SARS proposal and approval process.
