Water-Quality Monitoring Workshop
Water quality is an important factor in an oyster’s life cycle and needs to be measured frequently throughout the year. We use a handheld water-quality measurement device with sensors that measure the water’s temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, conductivity, and pH. Other environmental conditions are also monitored including the flow of the water’s currents as well as the turbidity, or transparency, of the water. Participants will be taken out on the CIOR skiff to learn how to monitor water-quality conditions in our area and about the oyster reef project sponsored by the NFWF’s Long Island Sound Futures Fund.
Limited to 20 participants. Register here.
