Many environmentalist groups work in tandem with local governments to construct artificial reefs, which can be made from cement and PVC. Artificial reefs are also constructed by repurposing old vehicles and sinking them. These structures attract lots of sea life and improve the health of fish populations. Artificial reefs, combined with regulations, help various species to bounce-back after being overfished.

Some extend the definition of artificial reefs to include offshore oil rigs, gas platforms, and other man-made structures which serve a similar function but You only can go deep sea fishing near  the Reef around An Thoi.

Reef Fishing Gear

A stout, heavy action fishing rod is essential when reef fishing. You can pair it with a spinning reel or a free-spooling trolling reel. Be sure to use a reel capable of holding a large amount of heavy test line.

Reefs can be very sharp, so you will need to choose your line accordingly. Braided line is ideal, because it’s abrasion-resistant and stretches less than monofilament. You will also need a leader (60mm-80mm -100mm) for extra protection against the rough edges of the reef. Nylon and wire leaders both have their advantages when fishing in saltwater, while fluorocarbon is preferred among freshwater anglers because it’s harder for the fish to see.
