On behalf of the entire Fox CT team, we'd like to congratulate reporter John Charlton and photographer Ryan Bernat for winning the Connecticut Agricultural Journalism Award.

The duo was honored at the Capitol on Wednesday as the state celebrated Agriculture Day. They won for their story on an eel farm in Middletown.

The company that was featured in their news segment, Marine Bait Wholesale, was awarded a $50,000 grant by the state to help it expand.
