The Cornell Cooperative Extension and associates of Suffolk County’s Marine Program are exploring ways to expand the consumption of locally caught and farmed seafood on Long Island.  Your survey participation and input will inform and help guide local seafood marketing.  The project aim is to expand the diversity and preferences for locally caught and grown seafood that is fresh, sustainably-harvested, and healthy to eat.  Funding support for this project was provided by the New York Farm Viability Institute.
