How does Long Island Sound measure up? Find out in the Sound Health 2010 report. The report looks at indicators of the Sound’s health in the areas of water quality, coastal and animal populations, habitats, and land use. It’s an opportunity to learn more about whether fish are safe to eat, is the water cleaner, how land use decisions affect water quality, how tiny algal plants can harm the Sound’s water quality, the impact of oil spills on Long Island Sound, and advice on how you do more to protect a body of water that’s home to millions of people and a wide variety of fish, invertebrates, coastal birds and other animals. The report is available on the Sound Health page.
