The Junta de Andalucia has announced plans to install new artificial reefs in the sea between Maro and the Cerro Gordo. The plan will be funded by the oil company Cepsa and is designed to protect the underwater sea-grass meadows. The meadows are host to rare species of crustaceans, worms, echinoderms and molluscs.

It is claimed that the area is famous for the wide variety of these creatures and that it is important to preserve them not least as a tourist attraction.
