Irving Puffer at work on his grant in Wellfleet Harbor on a perfectly calm Monday morning after OysterFest weekend. Working with him, but not in this photo was Jake, his son and business partner, the first winner of a Wellfleet SPAT scholarship in 2006.
On the same day, a collaborative aquaculture gear cleanup effort was underway. Coming together to pull stray gear from Wellfleet’s intertidal waters on Oct. 19, left to right: Genevieve Martin, Laura Ludwig, Nancy Civetta, Paul Hussey, and Americorps Volunteer Ashley Boudreau. (Photos Nancy Bloom)
