Farmingville, NY - Brookhaven Town recently provided the Brookhaven Baymen’s Association with 50,000 seed clams for planting in Bellport Bay. Brookhaven Town operates one of Long Island’s largest municipal shellfish hatcheries in Mount Sinai Harbor, growing more than 2 million oysters and one million clams at the facility. These shellfish are planted in bays and harbors throughout the Town when they reach maturity to help clean local waters and revive local fisheries.
