Dr. Christopher Gobler: 2021 State of the Bays

HBCA May Meeting: Tuesday 5/25 @ 7:00PM:

Since the late 20th century, critical Long Island marine habitats such as eelgrass and salt marshes declined by up to 80% and top shellfisheries up to 90%. Locally we've seen outbreaks of brown tide, rust tides, toxic Cyanobacteria blooms, invasive seaweeds, hypoxia, and fish kills which are directly and indirectly linked to excessive nitrogen in our ground water. Multiple solutions to water quality impairments are emerging.
