The Lisa Kim, a 115-foot surf clam vessel,was sunk in October 2016 on the Wildwood Artificial Reef

DEP studies have shown that these materials are colonized quickly with organisms such as algae, barnacles, mussels, sea stars, blue crabs, and sea fans that attract smaller fish which, in turn, attract black sea bass, tautog, summer flounder, scup, lobster and other sought-after species,
