Fisheries

CCE is one of the only groups on Long Island that works directly with local commercial fisherman.  We help to ensure this unique and historical way of life is preserved.  We work with local, state and federal managers to ensure local fishing is sustainable.  We aid in the design and testing of conservation fishing gear that reduces by-catch of non-target species.
