Life on the Barnegat Bay is a documentary about the declining conditions in Barnegat Bay and the efforts of our partners to protect and restore it. Produced by the Barnegat Bay Partnership and Ocean TV-20 at Ocean County College, the film was originally broadcast on local cable television in January 2011. “Life on the Barnegat Bay” features Pete McLain, a retired wildlife biologist and deputy director of NJ Fish and Wildlife who has lived and worked on the bay for over sixty years.
