The seagrass meadows are underwater flowering plants that anchor a fragile ecosystem a few meters beneath the atmosphere. These lovely meadows are the counterpart to the more familiar terrestrial plains. Both plant communities anchor the soil to prevent erosion, and both harbor a multitude of animals.
The intrepid codfish depicted in our logo embodies the fishes, mollusks, and crustaceans living among the seagrasses and throughout Salem Sound. These fauna, and many others directly or indirectly, have been central to the economic lifeblood of New England.
The buoy represents the vantage from which we begin our exploration and enjoyment of the marine environment.
