ABOUT BEN MOSTKOFF
almost-native of Miami Beach, (missed it by 3 years), Ben grew up
fishing and diving Miami's coastal waters and, by serendipitous
intervention, served to initiate and coordinate the Miami Dade County
Artificial Reef Program from 1981 to 1996 for the Department of
Environmental Resources Management. Married to his Boston College
sweetheart, Debbie, for 37 years, Ben is the proud father of three, all
graduates of the University of Florida. Still a resident of Miami
Beach, at 63 Ben continues to enjoy Miami's coastal waters on their
1973, 22' 2" Aquasport, named Calypso.
