Alewife at Woodhull Dam

Woodhull Dam, is located on the Little River, a tributary of the Peconic River. This dam currently prevents the largest population of river herring on Long Island from reaching critical spawning habitat.  Approximately 50,000 – 80,000 fish spawn below the dam each year in a stalled effort to reach upstream habitat.
