Thomas J. Hilton and Richard Wayne Bauer (father of Wayne Evan Bauer) have teamed up as the 2 co-inventors on the patents listed below to develop a manufacturing technique that we believe will revolutionize the artificial reefing industry! The patents are the property of Atlantis Marine Habitats, LLC.
This technique, which employs the use of sprayable concrete onto forms, is protected with the following patents;
U.S. Patent No. 9,403,287 issued on August 2, 2016
U.S. Patent No. 9,498,901 issued on November 22, 2016
U.S. Patent No. 9,774,687 issued on August 29, 2017

This process produces a superior artificial reef that possesses longer life spans, greater structural integrity, along with incredible complexity and texture to enhance marine life.
Our first job with our new company Atlantis Marine Habitats, LLC was subcontracted through Callan Marine for a project with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for construction of 2,900 concrete/limestone pyramids for placement in Texas territorial waters. These reefs will be accessible to all Texas recreational anglers 365 days/year via TPWD's Nearshore Reefing Program with reef sites located outside of major ports all along the Texas coast. Atlantis Marine habitats has produced and deployed almost 4,000 artificial reefs since early 2016.
