Long Island Sound is home to over 100 species of fish. July days bring recreational fishing off Fishers Island’s South beach, hoping to reel in summer flounder, striped bass and bluefish.

FIConservancy works with New York and Connecticut to conserve some 400 acres of precious Eelgrass meadows that provide vital “nursery” habitat for fish, as well as foraging for sea birds, shore birds and marine mammals.
