Fragile coral reefs are often damaged by human activity and some ecologists try to create new ones by building concrete artificial reefs.  Whether or not this helps the environment it creates an interesting opportunity for disposing of human remains.  

Eternal Reefs, a company in Florida will, for a fee, permit families to incorporate the ashes of a loved one in an artificial concrete reef, attach a memorial plaque and bury it out at sea where it provides a home for reef wildlife.  

I wonder.  Is it better to be buried in a local field (click here), put your ashes in a jar, incorporate them in a concrete reef, or perhaps just be buried at sea for fish food?  

I'm glad we can choose.
