Friends of Casco Bay (Portland Maine and north by east) BayKeeper Joe Payne and Associate Director Mary Cerullo talk with Rob about the slithering of green slime over the benthos. With increasing regularity and alarming spread green algal mats are covering clam flats and gobbling up oxygen making life difficult for ground fish and ground dwellers including lobsters. Joe tells of hypoxic, low-oxygen regions of Casco Bay where fish swim in and die. These assaults on ocean ecosystems are caused by too much nutrients, nitrogen and phosphates, flowing, washing and seeping in. Mary Cerullo describes BayScaping, a six-step program for homeowners on environmentally friendly lawn care. Whether you live in this watershed or another, BayScaping will save you money, free time for you on Saturdays, and save marine life, too!
