Fishers Island Seagrass Management (FISM) Coalition The FISM Coalition is comprised of community representatives from Fishers Island institutions, including the H.L. Ferguson Museum, Fishers Island Conservancy, Town of Southold, Island Community Board, Fishers Island Development Corporation, Fishers Island Club, Hay Harbor Club, Fishers Island Yacht Club, Harbor Committee, Fishers Island School, Pirates Cove Marina, and Fishers Island Ferry District, as well as from the following groups: commercial and recreational fishing, aquaculture, contracted ferries, landscapers, and divers. Eelgrass preservation and education are part of a larger strategy to conserve Long Island Sound, as outlined in the Long Island Sound Study’s Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan. The FISM Coalition passed a Plan for Outreach and Engagement in August of 2022. This year, we are launching a Save Our Seagrass (S.O.S) educational movement to empower residents of Fishers Island Sound to protect eelgrass for their own benefit and for the benefit of their families. For this phase of the project, there are two initiatives the Coalition is focusing on: educate and promote the reduction of fertilizer to prevent eutrophication around Fishers Island and educate and engage boaters of Fishers Island about the damage caused by boats and the ramifications of those damages.
The FISM Outreach Assistant will work closely with the FISM Project Coordinator to identify key locations in the CT area that boaters depart from to visit Fishers Island. The Outreach Assistant will contact relevant organizations and distribute FISM Save Our Seagrass educational materials directly to boaters. This will include distribution during high-volume days for boaters (e.g. Weekends, events, and holidays).
