July Winner Brian SheldonThe July Winner of the Ecosystem Photo Contest is Brian Sheldon of Northern Oyster Co.! This photo shows the diversity of fauna growing on their float which provides an array of services for many non-shellfish species about 9 months per year. There are no anti fouling materials used in the construction of the float, so the submerged portion becomes heavily covered every year.
