Hands-on shellfishing lesson in Greenwich
GREENWICH — Sunday showers didn’t stop a curious crowd from trying their hand at shellfishing at Tod’s Point beach as the Greenwich Shellfish Commission held shellfishing demonstration.
Dozens of folks decked out in boots and waders took to the beach with rakes to fish for oysters, clams and mussels.
Greenwich Shellfish Commission Warden Bill Cameron and Commissioner Roger Bowgen spoke about the importance of shellfish, which filter millions of gallons of water every day to help keep the Long Island Sound waters clean. They also shared shellfishing tactics and regulations, as well as recipes for cooking the seafood.
