Sea Girt Reef Gets Additional Rubble

The Sea Girt Reef, located offshore of Monmouth County and part of the NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife's Artificial Reef Program, will receive three additional loads of concrete rubble from a seawall project in New York City.

Approximately 926 cubic yards of material will be placed on the reef addition to 2,778 cubic yards which were recently deployed.

Once the concrete is deployed it will serve as an attachment surface for mussels, barnacles, hydroids, anemones, stony coral and other invertebrates.

Deployment locations for the Sea Girt Reef are:

    1) 40 06.700'    73 57.200'
    2) 40 07.250'    73 57.000'
    3) 40 06.800'    73 57.000'

The Sea Girt Reef is a popular fishing location for anglers coming out of Manasquan Inlet.
