ShipwreckShipwreck/Artificial Reef

Long Island Aquarium’s Shipwreck/Artificial Reef exhibit features a variety of fish frequently found on, or around, shipwrecks, including grouper, angelfish, and lionfish (Pterois volitans).

Shipwrecks provide a hospitable environment for a variety of marine life. The walls, rooms, and compartments of a sunken ship provide protection against currents, light, and predators, allowing fish to thrive. At the same time, they offer hiding places for fish looking to ambush prey.
