Establishment of Fish Reef
The Division established a fish reef in 1978:
Located 2.2 miles south of the mouth of Bass River
LAT. 41 36' 25" and LONG. 70 11' 39"
Measures 880 yards by 40 yards
Constructed of recycled tires
The reef was added to in 1981, 1995, 1998 and prososed 2010. The tire reef has held substantial fish populations and provided good fishing for recreational and commercial fishing boats for many years.
We hope to add to the reef in the near future as recent surveys done by divers have shown that the tires have become somewhat dispersed.
