Inlet Bay area Sweep 8/28/16
We concentrated on the North end of the bay beginning in deeper water and working in toward the center of the bay. Numerous plants were discovered in the deep water by the divers which were not yet visible to the spotters. Previous years there have been deeper water plants so the effort was put in to find them before they surfaced.
As usual there were scattered plants along with a few areas more heavily populated that the divers concentrated on. More plants were marked in the south end of the bay that will need to be removed at a future date. Once again the Inlet itself had its share of plants that were spotted prior to the sweep and removed.
Thanks to the following people that participated as well as the large snapping turtle seen for not taking any toes off.
Divers: Emery Dergosits, Jim Clarke, Jim Belott
Snorkelers: Doug Ryan, Evan Glass.
Scouts: Gretchen Sunderland, Evan Glass, Kathleen and Jim Frederick
Additional support: Jim and Mel Belott
