LIBOR Supports Northport Aquaculture Program with $26,000 towards Oyster FLUPSY Project

Members of Long Island Board of REALTORS® (LIBOR) were on hand at the Incorporated Village of Northport’s Feb 4, 2020 Village Trustee meeting to present the Village with a check for $26,000 to support their Oyster FLUPSY project.

The Oyster FLUPSY – Floating Upwelling System – will help to promote clean waterways in Northport Harbor. The aquaculture program will partner the Village of Northport with Huntington Maritime Services and Cornell University over a five year agreement. This project will help create a natural oyster habitat for over 100,000 oysters that will aid in filtering and cleaning waterways in Northport.

“On behalf of Long Island Board of REALTORS® and our Huntington Township Chapter, we are excited to support such a great community project like this. Our waterways play such a vital role to our environment, economy, and lifestyles for every Long Islander. LIBOR will always continue to work with our local communities to make Long Island a great place to live, work, and play,” said LIBOR President, Matthew Arnold.
