The Harwich, Massachusetts, board of selectmen have voted to approve permitting and construction of an artificial reef off Saquatucket Harbor.

Harwich Reef Location

The reef would provide habitat for a variety of fish species (e.g., sea bass, tautog, scup, fluke, striped bass, bluefish), as well as the smaller prey they feed on. No word yet on what the reef will be made of or how it will be funded.
