I have heard that some companies will drop rock into a desiganted area for aging and farming. Is this how most companies do it or do most companies just pull from the public reef?

These are aquicultured. If you go to their site I think you'll find some info about it. These are all rocks that they've "planted" and then they leave them grow and then harvest them. Great stuff. Another 100% satisfied LR.com customer. Great stuff. My next LR will come from them too!
