In the past week I went on two patrols of the Sound with local fishermen and Sound enthusiasts. Getting out on the water with local boaters is the best way to explore the many local treasures along our coastline and to learn about community concerns, challenges and opportunities.
There’s a lot going on in and around Long Island Sound. It’s 1320 square miles of saltwater and sun; beaches, ports, and marshes; sailboats, tankers, and lobster pots. To ensure a good and prosperous future for Long Island Sound, we need to build an inventory of our current uses and create a guide for the future.
