Fishers Island Seagrass Webinars & Input Survey
As an active partner and co-chair of the Fishers Island Seagrass Management (FISM) Coalition, the Museum is pleased to promote the dedicated work taking place to protect the Island’s seagrass. As such, we encourage islanders to read about the plan that FISM is developing to preserve and manage local seagrass beds by registering for an upcoming FISM webinar and completing the input survey. Details below.
The Fishers Island Seagrass Management Coalition is developing a plan to preserve and manage seagrass, a valuable but threatened marine resource that supports commercial and recreational fishing, ecosystem biodiversity and health, and the beauty of Fishers Island.
