MAN-MADE MARINE HABITAT
Larry Beggs, above left, and Shawn
Trew pack concrete into a "reef ball" mold at Wanchese Seafood
Industrial Park on Monday. More than 500 concrete balls will be placed in
clusters five miles off Nags Head. The state Division of Marine Fisheries hopes
the artificial reef will attract and shelter fish and other sea life. At left is
an aquarium-sized model of the reef balls.
