update on the dolphins in the harbor

Nantucket Harbor update:

from the Inquirer and Mirror web site and from updates from the Nantucket Marine Mammal Stranding team
dolphins and green turtle

a small fuel spill by docks in the harbor, with the current slim scallop harvest pickings, adding insult to injury.

The Town of Nantucket is starting to develop the Shellfish Management plan with the help of a local committee and the Urban Harbors Institute. The creation of a SMP is one of the many action items in our state approved Harbor Plan. I am the chair of the harbor plan implementation committee; come join us for our meetings, the next one is 500 November 18th.

  1. Last night I was checking my scallop boat which I keep in the Boat Basin and while I was there, I noticed a huge amount of fuel on the water. Also, there was a heavy odor of fuel. Nobody was there doing anything to clean it up. I have never seen so much oil spilled in the Boat Basin before.
