TOWN OF ISLIP’S OYSTER BAY BOTTOM LEASING PROGRAM TURNING THE GREAT SOUTH BAY INTO A CLEANER OYSTER PARADISE

EAST ISLIP, NY (Sept. 24, 2014) — Islip Town Supervisor Tom Croci and members of the Town Board joined with local bay men today to mark the recovery of oystering on the Great South Bay and mark the beginning of the fall harvest season.

Speaking at press conference at the former town shellfish hatchery in East Islip, now operated privately as Great Atlantic Shellfish Farms, officials and bay men provided evidence of the rebirth of an industry, once vital to the town’s South Shore villages, and the promise of cleaner waters in the Great South Bay, thriving small businesses, more jobs and increased revenues for the town treasury.

“Our two-year-old bay bottom-leasing program has allowed us to serve as good stewards of the precious natural resource known as Great South Bay and provides us with a growing source of revenue for the town. With our aquaculture program we have turned the tide back toward Blue point oysters. The town of Islip, with those who lease our bay bottoms, are bringing true blue point oysters back to the marketplace,” said Town Supervisor Tom Croci. “The Town of Islip is single handedly bringing the Blue Point oyster back to the marketplace. I would like to thank Councilman Flotteron for getting this effort started and applaud Town Board member John C. Cochrane,Jr. for spearheading our effort to privatize the hatchery and lease our bay bottom.”
