By the end of this season, the Shinnecock Bay Restoration Program will have deployed 2 million clams.
On July 10 gather with the like-minded to help stock our bays with filter feeders.
We have recently begun a tagging study of fluke in the bay. We are using acoustic tags and receivers to study the movement of summer flounder, or fluke. If you happen to catch a tagged fish, please consider releasing it so that we can continue to collect important data. Attached is a flyer outlining what the tags look like, and a number you can call if you encounter a tagged fish.
The Shinnecock Bay Restoration Program continues its effort to improve the bays health, enlisting local residents to, quite literally, change the tide.
In our Spring Issue, Meghan Harlow wrote about the Shinnecock Bay Restoration Program, an important push to revive the wildlife in the bays so essential to filtering the water. We heard from the program coordinator, Christine Santora, recently and she have some news about the upcoming year.
There may be plenty of fish in the sea, but there aren’t nearly enough shellfish in Shinnecock Bay.
