Ways to Explore Long Island Sound

“The University of Connecticut, in cooperation with the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (DEP,) has enhanced a dynamic website that allows users to explore Long Island Sound with state-of-the-art oceanic technology and a host of new video programs.

"The images and videos can be viewed at www.lisrc.uconn.edu/explorelis. The site also describes the various habitats in the Sound, discusses its history and geology, and provides information on how its environment is affected by human activity."

“Second, any fish that has survived for so long has laid a lot of eggs and is on her way to do it again.”
