The Artificial Reef Society of British Columbia, ARSBC, is a registered charitable non-profit society based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Our mission is to create environmentally- and economically-sustainable "artificial reefs" in British Columbia and around the world for the protection of environmentally- and historically-sensitive marine habitat, and for the enjoyment of scuba divers. Since 1991, the ARSBC has sunk 6 ships and one Boeing 737 in B.C.
"Of equal importance to us is the fact that your organization is working towards enhancing the marine environment using proven scientific and environmentally responsible methods of artificial reef development." - Jacques-Yves Cousteau, in a letter to the ARSBC in November, 1996.
