With time bacteria and other marine life will start attaching itself with the blocks and that will be the time when the artificial reef will become live. The artificial reef is on the coast of Puducherry in India which I would be visiting personally in the near future and witness the changes. Lastly, this effort is appreciable and I hope people all over the world would wake up and join efforts in fighting climate change which is the greatest threat to the world.
P.S- Please do not throw trash in the sea thinking that you are doing a reef-building activity. Not all materials are building blocks and react in the opposite way.
