Bernie Heggeman Memorial Reef Deployed

Anxiously-awaited Alabama Marine Habitat Project Begins

The “Bernie Heggeman Memorial Reef” was deployed late last week. The site covers roughly 4 acres of the Mississippi Sound where the old Blue Rig was located before it was removed. It was a favorite fishing spot for CCA Alabama Life Member, Bernie Heggeman. The permitting of this anxiously-awaited project took almost 2 1/2 years. Building Conservation is a proud partner of the Bernie Heggeman Memorial Reef, with CCA Alabama, Alabama Marine Resources, Mobile Big Game Fishing Club and many more who contributed on behalf of Bernie’s Memory.
