On October 6, 2017, Littoral Society staff and volunteers completed another seining event at Wreck Pond. While we did not match the excitement of last week’s sample (4 juvenile alewife caught!), we did catch a good number of species. As always, we hauled in hundreds of Atlantic silversides, as well as many northern kingfish. One mullet was caught on the Sea Girt side of the pond, along with several striped killifish. We also observed signs of “snapper” bluefish chasing and feeding on bait fish at the pond side culvert entrance, a common site the past few weeks.
