Town To Host Suffolk County Aquaculture Lease Program Public Information Meeting


The Town of Southampton and Suffolk County Economic Development and Planning Department will host a public information meeting on the Ten Year Review of the Suffolk County Aquaculture Lease Program (SCALP).

Tuesday April 23, 2019 at 6:00pm

Southampton Town Hall

Town Board Meeting Room-Second Floor 

116 Hampton Road, Southampton, NY 11968

The purpose of this meeting is to present information on the program and to seek feedback from the community.  This program, which provides secure access to marine space for private, commercial shellfish aquaculture was developed by Suffolk County for publicly-owned underwater lands in Peconic Bay and Gardiners Bay.  In 1884, New York State ceded 110,000 acres of Peconic and Gardiners bays to Suffolk County for the purpose of oyster cultivation.  Currently, SCALP participants lease ten acre plots on which they may grow a variety of shellfish.  These leases run for ten years.

This meeting will give an overview of the leasing process, update the public on the program and modify the program, if necessary,  for the future.
