If you enjoy the taste of fresh, locally caught shellfish, there’s a story behind their arrival to your dinner plate. Starting with the effects of climate change, to the impact of algal blooms on our local bays and wetlands, our local shellfish farmers have adjusted in recent years to ensure you can enjoy your favorite oysters and clams. Join us for a conversation featuring three individuals in the industry.

Panelists:

  • Ben Gonzalez of Southold Bay Oysters, operating out of the Trust's Shellfisher Preserve
  • Paul McCormick of Great Gun Oyster Farm in Moriches,
  • Steve Tettelbach, Shellfish Ecologist at Cornell Cooperative Extension's Marine Science Division and Professor Emeritus in Biology at L.I. University

Moderated by journalist Charity Robey.
