PHOTOS: 'Save Our Seagrass' Fundraiser Benefits East End Shellfishing

Supporters of the East End ecosystem gathered at South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton to celebrate and sample the shellfish bounty.

The Andrew Sabin Family Foundation, Save Sag Harbor and Cornell University Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County partnered on Saturday at South Fork Natural History Museum to host an evening of education about disappearing seagrass. Guests were treated to samples of local shellfish, supervised by Sue Collins of 230 Elm in Southampton. A select group of students from Ross Lower School competed for first prize for their eelgrass-themed art creations, which were on display.  Of special interest was the lively discussion about the recent opening of the potentially lucrative market for scallops on the half shell.  Awards were presented to major supporters from the sponsoring organizations.
