A Seafood Platter for the Fish

Record #:
Artificial reefs are used to increase fish habitats and areas for sports fishing. The state is constructing its first artificial fishing reef off the coast of New Hanover County between Masonboro Inlet and Carolina Beach. The reef will be about a mile in length and about 200 yards wide. It will rise twelve feet from the ocean floor. A combination of old automobile bodies and large household appliances are being used in the construction.
