 Huntington Town Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci recently joined Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino,North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth, local officials and industry experts to discuss local 3D Ocean Farming in a meeting hosted by Rep. Tom Suozzi at The WaterFront Center.
Northport Harbor, Oyster Bay, and Hempstead Harbor are areas under consideration for new ocean farming initiatives.
“In the tradition of Huntington’s proud maritime heritage, ocean farming would be a boon to the Northport community and Huntington as a whole, benefitting our local economy, creating jobs, and protecting our environment,” said Supervisor Lupinacci.
3D Ocean Farming is a polyculture vertical farming system that grows a mix of seaweeds and shellfish that require zero input—creating a sustainable form of food production, sequestering carbon, rebuilding reef ecosystems, creating jobs and improving our fishing economy.
