When we arrived later in the day we told the campers in fishing club that instead of the normal routine we would be traveling to Shell Beach for something special. Once they saw the grill they knew that they were in store for a treat.

While that was cooking I talked to the group about sustainable practices, in particular various things that can be done with what was left of the fish to help the effort to reduce, reuse and recycle. I explained that usable meat could still be taken off of certain areas in the frame and that the bones and head could be used to make soups. Additionally I baited our minnow and crab trap with a few chunks. While I had intended to compost the remainder of the frame to demonstrate another use for the leftovers, I was regrettably informed that CHV no longer puts meat in the compost after a number of incidents with Long Island's native raccoon population.
