The Sea Girt and Axel Carlson Reefs located offshore of Monmouth County and part of the NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife's Artificial Reef Program, will receive 2,780 yards of clean bridge rubble. The Axel Carlson Reef will receive two loads totaling 1,853 cubic yards and the Sea Girt Reef will receive one load totaling 926 cubic yards.
By summer, the new reef could attract sea bass, tautog, scup, triggerfish and summer flounder. It will then become a target of anglers coming out of Manasquan Inlet.
