Peconic Bay Scallops: Yesterday and Today

October 22, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Local historian Erin Becker presents a history of the Peconic Bay scallop industry, explaining the place of the scallop in New York City/Long Island cultural heritage and cuisine.  Last year, the scallop crop suffered a catastrophic failure and the season opened in November to find that 90% of the scallops had died.  How does knowing the history of this industry tell us about where it stands today?
