The Great South Bay was once an abundant source of shellfish. Whether oysters or clams, the bounty of the bay provided a livelihood for baymen stretching back to the 19th century. Conditions now are much different and Chris Clapp of the Nature Conservancy explains how his organization is working to restore not only the diminished clam population (on the property of the former Blue Points Oyster Company) but the health of the entire Great South Bay.
"...you could walk from clam boat to clam boat across the whole bay."
