River Herring, Vanishing Resources


Author(s):
Abstract:
River herring is a group composed collectively of two herring-like species--the alewife and the blueback. Although sports fishermen seek them in a few locations in the state, most river herring are taken commercially. Tyus discusses their importance, the cause of their decline, and what can be down to reverse their downward spiral.
