description. A poster designed for the Aquarium of the Pacific's January 2020 conference on potentially classifying California's decommissioned offshore oil rigs into artificial reefs. These hard structures have unintentionally become some of the most prosperous marine environments in California waters. While no final determinations have been announced, there is much debate as to whether or not these reefs will be allowed to remain, or be removed with the structures they have grown on.
