Die-Hard Ocean Debris Threatens Tourism Post Sandy
Acropolis is counting on the state to quickly remove the marine debris to prevent even deeper economic losses from the storm.
"Someone goes out crabbing; they buy gas for the boat, maybe they have to rent the boat in the first place. They buy bait, they buy lunch," Acropolis said. "It's a big economic impact. People live here because they want to be on the water, out on a boat. If we don't get this cleaned up, we're going to have a problem."
