New York/New Jersey Baykeeper
Gaze upon Weekhawken Cove and something is a little fishy, as it holds not one, but two sunken sailboats. A couple more look, well, left for dead.
The project, being run by Rutgers University and the New York/New Jersey Baykeeper group, is designed to re-establish the once-plentiful shellfish in Raritan Bay to help improve the bay’s water quality.
In an effort to return oysters to Raritan Bay, New York/New Jersey Baykeeper and Rutgers scientists have been mapping every inch of the coastline, looking for suitable locations for restoration of reefs.
