The ultimate reef book, "A Guide to Fishing and Diving New Jersey Reefs" is now available by mail and at bait and tackle shops statewide. The publication is a cooperative effort between the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's Division of Fish and Wildlife, the Artificial Reef Association and The Fisherman Magazine.

The 64-page reef guide is made of waterproof and tear-proof plastic pages, designed specifically for use on small boats, in bad weather and at sea. It contains:

The guide is an invaluable aid to anyone who fishes or dives on New Jersey's reefs. The cost is $17.95 with proceeds to fund the construction of more fishing and diving reefs along the Jersey coast.

To order by mail, enclose a check or money order for $20 ($17.95 plus $2.05 postage and handling for EACH book), payable to the Artificial Reef Association, P.O. Box 16, Oceanville, NJ 08231.

The Division of Fish and Wildlife administers the state's Artificial Reef Program. New Jersey has a network of 14 ocean reef sites, which are evenly spaced along the coast and available to anglers and divers from Sandy Hook to Cape May.
