On Sunday afternoon the Mayor attended a screening of Shellshocked presented at the Westhampton Beach Performing Art Center. This documentary is a mixture of history lesson, biology instruction, a touch of water chemistry, and mostly an eye opener. The director of the movie, Emily Driscoll, was present and her enthusiasm for the subject was infectious.

The Moriches Bay Project was instrumental in arranging the presentation at the P.A.C. and it has taken up the standard of working tirelessly to begin the restoration of our local marine waters.
The Cornell Cooperative Extension has been providing education and support for aquaculture and, like seed oysters, their ideas are taking hold here in Moriches Bay as they have been successfully for years in Peconic Bay.
