Research back to top
The Trophic Interaction between Hard Clams and Natural Assemblages of Phytoplankton (2007, Cerrato, R/FBM-23) (pdf)
NYSG researchers have assessed the relationship among hard clams, phytoplankton and zooplankton, showing that hard clams are not the driving force they once were in Long Island bay food webs. A clam restoration program has been initiated based on the finding that clam filtration can shift phytoplankton populations to species that support strong juvenile clam growth.
Effects of Pesticides on Lobster Health: Trace Level Measurements and Toxicological Assessment at Environmentally Realistic Concentrations (2007, McElroy, R/CTP-27) (pdf)
Sea Grant researchers measured the toxicity of pesticides that may have been implicated in the 1999 lobster die off in Long Island Sound. Techniques developed to measure the pesticides are now sought after nationwide.
Analysis of Field Plantings of Young Cultured Hard Clams, Mercenaria mercenaria (Linne), in Long Island, NY (2007, Rivara, R/ATD-10) (pdf)
In a Sea Grant-funded project using an unprecedented cooperative approach, scientists and resource managers experimented with the timing of hard clam seeding to improve yield and bring more clams to market.

NYSG Facilitates Online Training to Ensure Seafood Safety (2010) (pdf)
In 2009, more than 1,000 individuals from seafood companies and state or federal regulatory agencies participated in food safety training programs conducted or managed by New York Sea Grant.
NYSG Facilitates Online Training to Ensure Seafood Safety (2009) (pdf)
New York Sea Grant (NYSG) conducts outreach activities for the seafood industry that include a variety of education and training programs, workshops, newsletters, and direct technical assistance. For example, NYSG has developed and manages two Internet training programs on food safety regulations that apply to the seafood industry.
Creating New Ways to Teach Biodiversity in NYS High Schools (2008) (pdf)
In 2007, New York Sea Grant and the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History collaborated to create a new and exciting resource to improve the capabilities of grade 5-9 science teachers to teach biodiversity and global climate change in the classroom. Long Island Sound (LIS) lobster mortality research was used to create a curriculum to meet New York State Learning Standards.
NYSG Training Helps Ensure Seafood Safety for Industry, Consumers (2008) (pdf)
The seafood industry contributes more than $7.9 billion to the state’s economy and employs 96,000 New Yorkers (NY Sea Grantfunded survey, 1999). To compete and prosper, those in the seafood industry must have science-based systems in place to maximize the safety and quality of the products they produce, process or deliver to consumers.
New York Sea Grant: Helping the Seafood Industry Enhance Product Safety (2007) (pdf)
The seafood industry is important to New York. In 1999, the industry contributed more than $7.9 billion to the state’s economy and employed 96,000 New Yorkers. To remain competitive and to prosper, the industry must use science-based systems to maximize the safety and quality of its products. New York Sea Grant (NYSG) maintains an active extension program that helps the state’s seafood industry implement effective strategies to enhance food safety and quality.
