This message might be of interest to those who with views on what we still need
to learn about Long Island Sound:
Connecticut Sea Grant wants to hear from you!
Connecticut Sea Grant is holding public meetings to gather opinions as part of
its strategic planning process. The program supports scientific research,
education, training, and extension projects on coastal and marine issues. Topics
have ranged from shellfish aquaculture, fisheries and seafood safety, to the
effects of human activities on important marine habitats and ecosystems, and the
sustainable development of coastal communities to better prepare for hazards
such as storms. To learn more about Connecticut Sea Grant, visit
http://seagrant.uconn.edu. Meetings will begin with a brief presentation about
Sea Grant activities, followed by an opportunity for you to identify topics and
issues you think are important for the program to address in the next 4 years.
This is your chance to be heard and guide our program’s future. Refreshments
will be served, and a Sea Grant hat, bag or mug will be given to first 20 people
in the door. Please RSVP (including the location of the meeting you will be
attending) via email (seagrant at uconn.edu) or phone (860-405-9128). Email
responses will not be shared. For those unable to attend in person, an
electronic survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SK2RSG8.
