Abstract

A look at the changes that Narragansett Bay has seen -- from pollution from untreated sewage and industrial runoff that killed fish to clean-up efforts which may have caused a decline in shellfish to climate change, which is altering the species composition of the bay. These shifts have impacted commercial fishermen and shellfishermen, forcing the industry to adapt. With a sidebar about Jamestown, on Conanicut Island, which is experiencing a high-end housing boom.
