Underwater in Salem Sound Lecture Series:

"On the Rocks - Life Underwater"

Presenters: Ted Maney, Marine Biologist, Salem State University

A variety of sea creatures live on the ocean floor and cling to the underwater rocks and hard surfaces. Influxes of newcomers have created a competition for this limited real estate. In this presentation, Salem State University Marine Biologist and SCUBA diver, Ted Maney, will share the results of long-term ecological monitoring projects at rocky subtidal communities including nearby Halfway Rock and off East Point in Nahant.

He will also describe efforts to set up an offshore mussel farm on sub-tidal long lines in the Gulf of Maine.

2014 International Coastsweep

Salem Sound Coastwatch coordinated beach and river cleanups in Beverly, Salem, Marblehead, Peabody, and Swampscott.

115 volunteers picked up 845 lbs of trash from 12 locations which included over 5,400 cigarette butts.

Some unusual finds were the lower half of a manikin, Christmas lights, eyeglasses, and rugs. We also found a car key and a class ring. Both were return to their owners.

Thank you to all who helped clean our coastline.
