“Limulus: The REAL Blue Blood”

Click to show meeting description

Horseshoe crab

The horseshoe crab, Limulus polyphemus, is a dynamic and unique marine invertebrate whose blood is a hugely valuable biomedical resource. While the blood helps to save human lives the eggs provide a vital food source for migratory birds. Join us as we explore the ecology, management and importance of this charismatic animal.

George Buckey is an NEAq board member, Boston Sea Rovers board member and Harvard Professor.

If you've gone on an interesting trip, or seen done some great diving, this is your meeting! Each year we ask the members to give a presentation to the members. If you have an idea for something you'd like to talk about, email Joy at Each person would have 5-10 minutes and will need to bring their presentation on a thumb drive so we can put it up on the screen.

NEADC Elections

It's that time of year again! At the November General meeting we will be holding elections for the 2015 officer positions.

ANYONE IS ENCOURAGED TO RUN FOR ANY POSITIONS! Some officers may be running again, but don't let that stop you from running - we'd love to have elections with multiple candidates.

If you have some ideas for the club, or you want to see something happen, become an officer. Look for officer duty descriptions on the by-laws, or email an officer

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. There will be a total of 12 public hearings between November 24, 2014 and January 7, 2015. 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

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.
