MASON REEF DEPLOYMENT
The Mason Reef is locate along Chicago Ave between 2 and 4th Street. The Mason reef was originally dedicated on October 20, 2003 in the memory of a long time City Employee Robert “Bob” Mason who was very active in the Ocean City Reef Foundation. Today we placed two 7′ concrete culvert pipe, retrofitted with material that would encourage the growth of fouling material. This material of algae and Crustaceans become food source for smaller fish in which bring in the larger fish. The Town actively holds the permits for 10 artificial reef sites off the coast of Ocean City.
