Taking Action: What We’re Doing

It’s our fifth year of sailing on the Piscataqua and this season we’re celebrating by highlighting five actions we’re taking to help protect the marine environment and the maritime heritage of the Piscataqua Region.

In June, the Gundalow joined PREP and the Stewardship Network of New England for the first ever Great Bay Clean Up.  We picked up over 360 pounds of trash from around Great Bay and plan to continue the effort throughout the summer.  Learn more here.

Each year, the Gundalow Company brings attention to a variety of issues through our education and public sails. This summer, as part of our Contemporary Coastal Issues Speaker series, we are highlighting the growing concern around ocean plastics by inviting Rebecca O’Brien from Surfrider and Kara Lavender Law from Sea Education Association to discuss plastic in the ocean.  Check out our complete speaker series.

Great Bay, the Piscataqua River, and the Gulf of Maine are home to a variety of fishering industries. There are many ways to support and encourage sustainable fisheries, and this summer we’re hosting brunch on the Gundalow with a several local fisheries experts to highlight the importance of the local fishing industries.

The Gundalow Company is working with the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management to monitor for marine invasive species at our dock and at three other locations along the Piscataqua River.  In addition, Gundalow volunteers and crew are raising oysters as part of a project to help with Oyster Restoration in Great Bay.  Learn more here.
