Where Have All the Herring Gone?

Record #:
The schools of river herring once came in droves to the waters of North Carolina but recently the river herring catch has plummeted by more than 1.4 million pounds. Causes of river herring reduction come from water pollution that causes blue-green algae to deplete the oxygen supply to eggs and young fish, while dams and other water projects have altered the natural flow of rivers that alter the natural instincts of the herring.
