An experimental artificial reef (AR) was built in Peter the Great Bay (Sea of Japan) to compensate for the biotope of Zostera destroyed by sea urchins. After eight years, the number of fish species on the AR increased from 5 to 18 and the fish biomass increased from 3.07 up to 37.1 g/m2. Nonmigrating species (Opisthocentrus, young-of-the-year rockfishes, elegant sculpin) formed the bulk of the population; and migrant species (flounders, frog and great sculpins, sea raven) made up the greater portion of the biomass (up to 34 g/m2). Cage reefs are recommended to compensate for destroyed habitats, particularly Zostera beds.
