New Oyster Reefs Approved!

The East Hampton Town Trustees approved the construction next year of two oyster reefs in Accabonac Harbor.

Skye Tanzmann and Nick Cooper, East Hampton High School students and interns with South Fork Sea Farmers, had updated the town board last week as to the September installation of a 50-yard-long oyster reef in the harbor. They delivered a similar presentation to the trustees on Oct. 14, along with a request to permit two more oyster reefs.
