Meeting located at: 
Shinnecock Commercial Fishing Dock, 333 Beach Rd, Hampton Bays, NY 11946

DEC has planned the expansions of seven existing artificial reefs and the creation of four new sites and is seeking feedback from commercial fishing interests to gain information that will help guide the future development of these sites and avoid conflicts with the commercial industry.

All commercial fishing interests and stakeholders are invited to attend meetings on changes to artificial reefs in the Atlantic Ocean and Long Island Sound. Stakeholders can provide valuable information by identifying fishing locations on charts provided at the meetings or by providing GPS data collected while fishing.
