The 2010 Artificial Reef Summit is dedicated to the memory of Chris Koepfer, the long-time Lee County Artificial Reef Coordinator who passed away this spring.

Chris Koepfer and his familyChris was a well-respected member of Florida’s artificial reef community and played a major role in establishing one of the most successful county artificial reef programs in the state. He is greatly missed by his family, friends, and colleagues.

A raffle to help support the future educational expenses for Chris’s two daughters will be held during the summit.

“Chris was always to us a highly esteemed colleague and consummate professional. His opinion and insight on artificial reef issues was always greatly valued by us as was his friendship.”
