The Long Island Sound Study (LISS) biennial report highlights work performed in 2005-2006 by government agencies, universities, nonprofit groups, citizens, and businesses to restore and protect the Sound. These projects help fulfill goals established in LISSs Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan of 1994. Authorized by Congress, LISS brings together people and institutions from across the Sound to protect a waterway that benefits millions of people, while providing natural habitats to more than 1,200 species of invertebrates, 170 species of fish, and dozens of species of migratory birds.
