Marine Sciences Research Center,; Nassau-Suffolk Regional Planning Board,; New York Sea Grant Institute,] Abstract. Zostera marina Linnaeus, commonly known as eelgrass, has a wide distribution occupying coastal waters in the northern sections of both the Pacific and the Atlantic Oceans and extending into Arctic seas (Rasmussen, ; McRoy, ; Aioi, ).

In New York waters eelgrass is found in the estuarine systems along the south shore of Long Island and in other protected sites (Suda, ). Jones, C.R. and J.R. Schubel. Distribution of surficial sediments and eelgrass in New York’s South Shore Bays: an assessment from the literature.

Aquaculture is increasingly viewed as a potential mechanism to meet the growing demand for food from the sea (Costa-Pierce, ), particularly as landings from world marine capture fisheries have plateaued (Brugere and Ridler,Muir, ).Although bivalve shellfish aquaculture represented only 10% of the world volume of fishery production init represented   main page main page Eelgrass is a sentinel species that can indicate the overall health of a coastal ecosystem.

Fulfilling this expectation is challenging in resource-dependent towns, that are periodically exposed to boom-bust dynamics. In northwest British Columbia, several large Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal projects have been proposed, involving high capital costs and There have been advances in this area, particularly in Europe.
