Amy Fleischer: The Solomon Islands
Click to hide meeting description

Join us for a brand-new adventure: finding mating pairs of the pelagic ocean triggerfish in the South Pacific. Along the way, the research crew encountered much more. From sharks and dolphins to manta rays and many other amazing creatures, the Solomon Islands reveal a fascinating world under the water. See photographs and videos, and hear stories of their adventures in this remote area. Learn how Amy’s mentor, Dr. Eugenie Clark, also known as the Shark Lady, continues to make impacts in marine conservation and research and on the next generation of scientists and explorers.

Amy Fleischer is the former Education Director at Mass Audubon's Wellfleet Wildlife Sanctuary

Cashes Ledge

The New England Fisheries Management Council has announced the public hearing dates and locations for the Draft Omnibus Habitat Amendment 2 and the Draft Environmental Impact Statement. Click here for the full schedule and details on the Habitat Amendment. We strongly recommend that the community attends the meeting and voices their opinion

The upcoming local events are:

Cashes Ledge, located about 80 miles east of Cape Ann, Massachusetts, is a unique underwater mountain range which provides refuge for a vibrant, diverse world of ocean wildlife. If not protected soon, it will face devastating threats.

Cashes Ledge is important not only to marine life but also to scientists hoping to learn about the health and function of New England’s oceans – many scientists believe that Cashes Ledge represents the best remaining example of an undisturbed Gulf of Maine ecosystem. As a result, scientists have used Cashes Ledge as an underwater laboratory for decades.

Modern commercial fishing technologies make Cashes Ledge extremely susceptible to damage from bottom trawling gear. A trawl could strip clear the kelp forest on Ammen Rock and completely alter the ecosystem that depends on it for decades or more. Some anemone populations could take up to 230 years to recover from a single drag of a bottom trawl.

Bottom trawling and scallop dredging on Cashes Ledge has been banned for over a decade, but the New England Fishery Management Council recently voted to reverse even these temporary protections and open Cashes Ledge to trawling.

Cashes Ledge needs permanent protection. CLF is committed to securing permanent protection to ensure the long-term health of this important and vulnerable ecosystem. Please join us in working to protect this world class undersea treasure.
