A company in Branford -- Atlantic Wire -- illegally discharged some kind of acidic liquid into the Branford River earlier this month and seems to have killed a bunch of crabs in the process. I read about it on something called the Lobster Fact Blog, here. The blog post reads like a short newspaper article but there's no indication which paper it might have been borrowed from. It also doesn't say what species of crab.
This is a blog about environmental issues in the New York area in general and Long Island Sound in particular. I'm the author of
"This Fine Piece of Water: An Environmental History of Long Island Sound," which came out in 2002. I wrote about the environment and other issues during almost two decades as a newspaper reporter.
Unless you tell me otherwise, I'll assume it's OK to publish what you send me.
