REEF Field Station

Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF) is a grass-roots organization that seeks to conserve marine ecosystems by educating, enlisting and enabling divers and other marine enthusiasts to become active ocean stewards and citizen scientists. The Cat Cove Marine Lab is a REEF Field Station and was instrumental in developing the Northeast Invertebrate/Invasives survey which was added this year to the northeast fish surveys being done by the dive community for many years.
