Our Guest in June: Stan Hales
On Thursday, June 4, Dr. L. Stanton Hales Jr. (known
by most of the mayors as Stan) updated the association on
the state of Barnegat Bay. Hales is Director of the Barnegat
Bay National Estuary Program based at Ocean Community College in Toms River.
He said that efforts to protect the bay have accelerated with additions to
program staff and a number of active efforts, including a cooperative
program with the county health department to develop a jellyfish threat
network. The goal is to help beach and bay-front communities protect bathers
from the often troublesome invertebrates. The estuary programs is also
involved in research efforts to help fight eutrophication. Generically the
term refers to an abundance of nutrients; where the bay is concerned it's an
overabundance. Hales said that in the absence of hard data, most experts
believe that the nutrients are nitrogen and phosphorous most likely from
fertilizers. Challenges to the bay include low levels of the dissolved
oxygen needed to support some life forms that once thrived in its waters.
Hales stressed that efforts to protect the bay require a coordinated effort
by all the municipalities in the Barnegat Bay watershed. For more
