Random stacking installation of FP reefs can create a large-scale mass of artificial reefs that has both a complicated small space and height.
１．Artificial reefs have many complex small spaces, and create much bulk volume.
２．The complex space with shadow of artificial reefs create nursery such as spawning grounds and hiding places.
３．Highly stacked artificial reefs give a strong stimulus to migratory fish even in deep water.
４．Large-scale change of tidal near the artificial reefs strengthen feeding and resting functions.
５．Artificial reefs combination with each other and overlap increase wave resistance.

| 〈 vortex basin 〉
Around the FP reef, a complex vortex basin is generated by the flow that
passes through the inside, and the vortex basin is widespread around random stacking installation of FP reefs.
|Habitat for rock fish
|The complex, shaded space provides a good habitat for rock fish, such as shelters and hiding places．
Epinephelus septemfasciatus/Apogon semilineatus
|Nursery for juvenile
|For juvenile, the complex interior space of mass of artificial reefs serves as a refuge for piscivorous fish, and the vortex basin around artificial reefs serves as a resting place and feeding ground.
Juvenile Sebastes thompsoni
(Immature fish season )
|A collection of various fish
|Random stacking installation of FP reefs provide a variety of fish with suitable habitats, due to their height, wide biofouling surface, and complex internal space. Therefore, it forms an ecosystem consisting of a wide variety of fish, from juveniles to adults.
FP reefs has been adopted in various parts of Japan.
