CCOM Speaker Series: Alewives
Alewives are a diadromous species – fish that return to freshwater rivers from the sea to spawn – and are invaluable to our ecosystems, but over the years many rivers and streams have been compromised from development, dams, and invasive plants.  Restoration of their habitats has been a major priority with our partners at Peconic Estuary Program, and Seatuck Environmental Association has taken the lead on tracking the progress and populations of the fish.  Come learn why these fish are so important, what’s being done, and how you can help!
