Vessel Deployment Slated for the Axel Carlson Reef

The Axel Carlson Reef located 4.4 nautical miles southeast of Manasquan Inlet in Momouth County is now slated to receive a 70-foot steel-hulled commercial trawling vessel for reefing Tuesday, April 24, 2007. The vessel (picture below "Caterina.D") will soon become a new home for 150 species of fish and marine life, a fishing ground for anglers and underwater attraction for scuba divers. The vessel will continue to serve the fishing industry for at least 50 years.
