The team of Scott Meixner, Mike Barass, and Kim Ansel, installed a brand new Underwater Council of British Columbia (UCBC) mooring buoy over Brigade Reef. The buoy will protect the reef for decades to come and offer a secure mooring and safe dive entry site for all divers. The buoy offers a portal into the massive and complex underwater world of the Brigade reef system, offering dives of all types to all levels of divers.  Scott, Mike and Kim completed the install in about 40 minutes then continued on to preform maintenance to the other buoys in the UCBC Howe Sound fleet. The Marine Life Sanctuaries Society will now have the opportunity to protect this reef area and work with fisheries and government to designate the site as a rockfish conservation area, like the other UCBC mooring buoy sites.
