Michael Adams was a shellfish farmer, scientist, computer programmer, photographer and long-time member and chair of the Jefferson County Marine Resources Committee. He passed away on July 4th after a long struggle with health issues. He is remembered as a man who lived his passions, brought intense research to his discussions and was always a fun person to talk. There is so much more, but we will wait on a longer obit that will be coming from his family. Personally, I always enjoyed the long phone conversations we had after he left the MRC for his shellfish farm. Michael had a very unique perspective on protecting the environment. He was one of a dwindling number of people who would fight for protection as well as restoration. He will be sorely missed by all that knew him.
A memorial will probably be held in August or September.
