REGION — The Yukon, a retired Canadian Navy ship, sits on the ocean floor offshore of Mission Beach.
The ship, which was sunk on purpose in 2000 to draw recreational divers, generates an estimated $5.7 million for San Diego’s diving and hospitality economy every year.
To bring more divers to the region, the nonprofit group California Ships to Reef would like to submerge more ships. A new process called marine spatial would help them identify the best spots to do so.
