Superstorm Sandy's impact has had a lingering effect in which many shore towns are still recovering from, especially in protecting the oceanfront from future storms. Stafford Mayor John Spodofora may have the solution in the works to help.
Between May and October each year the Barnegat Bay Partnership (on the heels of their State of the Bay Report release), samples with a 50-foot seine net at numerous parts of Barnegat Bay looking for juvenile fish. Officials have come across a variety of estuarine fish since 2012, but among them four are jellyfish species of which certain types have a potent and harmful sting.
Do our daily activities affect the Barnegat Bay, and how so? There are a number of issues hovering day to day activity in the bay and just about all of them are covered in the Barnegat Bay Partnership State of the Bay Report. Everything from how weather affects the bay, how animals and plants survive on nutrients, and how human behavior affects the bay are all things to be made aware of.
