The Friends are proud of the support from the foundations whose links appear below. The capacity building grants they have awarded us will greatly help in strengthening our organization for the benefit of Connetquot River State Park Preserve:
New York State DEC taking samples of trout from Connetquot
River to test for the presence of IPN. Electroshock is used
to temporarily stun and catch the fish, who are transported
for testing at the NYS DEC lab in Rome, NY. Read more about the Hatchery and IPN.
To view the video in a larger screen, hover over the video
and click the rectangular icon at the bottom right.
We hope to post the results of the testing as soon as they are
available. The Friends are working hard to install a well and pump
for the historic Hatch House so we can start raising trout once again.
