AUTHORS: Jack Buckley, Cohasset Center for Student Coastal Research; Susan Bryant, Cohasset Center for Student Coastal Research; CSCR students; and Dr. Sara Grady, MassBays (Massachusetts Bays National Estuary Program)

ABSTRACT: The Cohasset Center for Student Coastal Research partnered with the Gulf Association (watershed stewardship group) and with Dr. Sara Grady, South Shore Regional Coordinator for the Mass Bays Program to engage students in collecting field data about shellfish beds in the Gulf River. ArcDesktop was used for creating the feature service published in ArcGIS online. Students used esri's Collector app on their mobile devices for collecting geo-referenced shellfish data (shellfish type, quantity, sediment type). Students will be using analysis tools during the summer of 2017 to publish a report for community stakeholders who wish to take conservation and restoration action to allow shellfish beds to thrive in the Gulf River and Cohasset Harbor.
