July 30, 2012. A newly planted eelgrass patch, as part of an ongoing project by Cornell Cooperative Extension's Eelgrass Restoration Program, with local fish instantly taking residence.
Juvenile and adult scup (porgy) and black seabass among other species take refuge in the marine habitat and forage for food. Eelgrass planting units were assembled by campers at Peconic Dunes through our Marine Meadows volunteer program and were then planted by CCE divers.
