An Environmental Public Hearing to Be Aware Of…

September 22, 2021

I recently participated in a discussion at UConn Avery Point regarding the potential designation a wide swath of eastern Long Island Sound as a National Estuarine Research Reserve.

The designation would not make the area off-limits to fishing or other commercial activities that are restricted at other federally-protected areas, but I noted how shellfishermen, boaters, marina owners, commercial operators and southeastern Connecticut residents need to be kept apprised of developments.
