SAY NO TO INDUSTRIAL SHELLFISH FARMING IN THE NIANTIC RIVER.
Industrial shellfish operations that use suspended or floating ropes, trays and bags to cultivate shellfish will mar the Niantic River, causing irreparable harm to the estuary and the communities of East Lyme and Waterford. If allowed, this type of industrial shellfishing will undermine the protection and enjoyment of natural resources, put paddlers (canoes, kayaks and other small watercraft) at risk, threaten the economic well being of communities on both sides of the river, and prioritize business profits over public access to a natural treasure (and with NO impact to the economic well-being of our towns.)
