Strong’s is a longtime supporter of CCE Marine program. In 2018, we created a formal partnership in support of the Long Island Shellfish Restoration Project, when Strong’s Yacht Center on the Mattituck Inlet became a host for a floating upweller system (FLUPSY), a nursery system for growing 10 million juvenile clams for water quality improvement and restoration.
Today, Strong’s Yacht Center is home to 3 FLUPSY units for restoration across Southold Town and Back to the Bays stewardship sites. In 2021 & 2022, Strong’s hosted various camps and workshops taught by CCE Marine experts exclusively for our members. We continue this mission in 2023 with Strong’s-sponsored educational workshops for kids and adults.
We plan on expanding this partnership over the next 10 years including creating various stewardship sites in Mattituck to further preserve our local shellfish population and marine habitat.
