The search for juvenile river herring is underway at Wreck Pond. American Littoral Society staff along with volunteers began the 2017 summer/fall fish sampling earlier this month and will be conducting sampling events weekly until October.
On August 21, Society staff with help from up and coming young biologists, were at Wreck Pond for the Great American Solar Eclipse. Seine pulls were made earlier that morning as well as during the climax of coverage during the eclipse to document if there was any differences.
Although many of the same species were caught at both times, staff did notice a substantial increase in the amount of Northern kingfish during the eclipse.
