Release the Kraken !

Actually more like sink the Kraken.

On Jan. 20, 2017 the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Artificial Reef Program sank a 371-ft cargo vessel, named The Kraken. Dubbed the Kraken after the mythical, squid-like sea monster immortalized on film and in literature, the vessel was sunk 67 miles off the coast of Galveston to create a new artificial reef.

Over time, this sunken ship will become an artificial reef that attracts fish, coral, and other invertebrates as well as divers and anglers. The Kraken’s proximity to the Flower Gardens Marine Sanctuary also makes it a premier dive location in the Gulf of Mexico.
