Aquaculture making a splash as emerging industry

November 22, 2013

PORTSMOUTH—The shore along Town Pond in Portsmouth is thick with mud, enough to clasp down on anyone’s boot and keep it fastened there for a moment. Broken shells litter the beach, and the water’s surface is choppy because of the winds coming off Narragansett Bay. Here is the perfect environment for shellfish cultivation, and as coastal ponds throughout Rhode Island are being utilized for their shellfishing bounty, the public is growing more aware of the ecological and economic benefits of aquaculture to the state.

To come so close, yet end on the wrong side has been South’s plight this fall and Friday night’s 40-19 loss to Cranston East was no different than many of the others the Rebels have suffered through this season.
