Tasks Accomplished: 6) Launch and System Shakedown
6) Launch and System Shakedown --
1999--The three completed units were launched on 16. June, 6. July, and 30. July. They were transported to the launch site on a trailer donated by Jack Blake. Once launched, they were shuttled to "the Narrows" and attached to mooring systems which had been set out in April. They, together with Jack Blake’s original prototype, provided the four monitored systems in which seed was cultured in 1999.
2000-- Tom Berry relaunched his modified nursery on 12. May 2000. The nursery shared by Roy Scheffer and the town of Edgartown was tied to its mooring on 25. June, 2000. Jack Blake launched his new nursery on 8. July, 2000.
