NY Grants for LI Shellfish Restoration

Last year, Governor Cuomo announced a plan to help restore the shellfish populations across Long Island, investing $7.25 million into shellfish hatcheries. The hope is that by investing in hatcheries, this effort will strengthen the economy, create new jobs, and ensure cleaner waters. SUNY Stony Brook and the Cornell Cooperative Extension will be overseeing these hatcheries, while also preforming research in order to gather data for future restorations.
