5,000 Megawatts and 8 Million Clams: FLUPSY is Cool

January 29, 2010 Ron Masters, a Conservation & Waterways Commissioner (Point Lookout, NY), gives a tour of a solar powered FLUPSY (Floating Upweller System). This clam nursery ‘boat’ helps the community environmentally and economically.

“When the baby clams grow big enough to leave the nursery, they are deposited in local beds to support both recreational and commercial shell fishing. As an added benefit, as they feed, the clams act as environmental filters, playing a critical role in maintaining water quality and the ecological health of the Bay.”
