Peconic Baykeeper has awarded $10,000 to Stony Brook University’s Shinnecock Bay Restoration Program to sponsor a shellfish spawner sanctuary in a dedicated location in the Bay.
Working with the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) at the Stony Brook Southampton campus, the grant will fund a designated clam sanctuary, and representatives from Peconic Baykeeper will assist marine scientists from the school in the deployment of clams in Shinnecock Bay.
