The East Hampton Town Trustees, who have jurisdiction over many town beaches, waterways, and bottomlands on behalf of the public, considered a number of aquaculture proposals when they met virtually on Monday.

The request follows two consecutive years of a massive bay scallop die-off in the Peconic region.
