FLORIDA ARTIFICIAL REEFS AND GPS LOCATIONS

 Compiled from a publication published by the Broward County Dept. of Natural Resource Protection, Biological Resource Division, Marine Resources Section, "Broward County's Reefs and their Locations." as well as updates from Recreational Saltwater Fishing Regulations, and various other online and print sources.  This is public information and available to all.

Many species of fish can be caught over or near artificial reefs. Reefs deeper than 200' are especially productive for large pelagic predators. Anglers can find amberjack, black grouper, gag grouper, warsau grouper, snowy grouper and goliath grouper (protected) are among the reefs. Anglers should remember that grouper are very slow growing fish and conservation of this species is critical.

There is not need to be directly on top of a reef ..

Sailfish, kingfish, Spanish mackerel, barracuda, mutton snapper, and cobia as well as many other game fish, use the artificial reefs to feed. Cold, plankton-rich waters are forced by the Gulf Stream  up and over the top of the wreck. Often, in strong currents, an eddy can be seen on the surface, down current from an artificial reef. Game fish often lurk in this "disturbed" water, feeding on baitfish and pelagic crustaceans.
