MassBays' work focuses on estuaries in Ipswich Bay, Massachusetts Bay, and Cape Cod Bay.
MassBays' mission is to enable and support the gathering of information to provide a strong scientific basis for management decisions. Guided by the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan, or "Blueprint for the Bays," MassBays strives to provide technical support and scientific information to local and regional efforts to improve the health of our estuaries and the livelihood of communities dependent upon them.
MassBays funds research and monitoring projects through our Healthy Estuaries Grant Program, and partners with various entities to carry out research and monitoring around the Bays. MassBays leads and supports various programs and projects to address various aspects of ecosystem health. Learn more about our efforts by clicking on the buttons below.
