It was with great anticipation and excitement that the Cape Cod Commercial Hook Fishermen's Association took over the Waterkeeper license for Nantucket Soundkeeper in 2009.
Over nearly two years, we collected water samples throughout the summers, released two editions of the Boater’s Guide (10,000 copies each year) and began planning a campaign to close the federal water “donut hole” to dumping.
Unfortunately, we have come to the hard decision that CCCHFA is not the right home for the Soundkeeper Program at this time and on Oct. 6, 2010, our board of directors voted to relinquish the license.
We continue to be invested in maintaining a clean sound and hope to revisit this program in the future.
