Long Island Sound is a unique estuary in that it has two connections to the sea—New York Harbor to the west and Block Island Sound to the east—and receives the flow of several major rivers, including the Housatonic, Connecticut, and Thames Rivers that drain fresh water from states as far north as Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. The Sound provides feeding, breeding, nesting and nursery areas for a diversity of plant and animal life, and contributes an estimated $8 billion per year to the regional economy from boating, commercial and sport fishing, swimming, and sight-seeing. More than eight million people live in the Long Island Sound watershed.
