THE 2018 LONG ISLAND ALEWIFE SURVEY NEEDS VOLUNTEERS TO WATCH FOR RETURNING ALEWIVES FROM MARCH TO MAY
Long Island tributaries once supported spring runs of alewives returning from the ocean to spawn. But dams, habitat loss and declining water quality have decimated their numbers. Remnant populations exist, but there is still little known about their overall status across Long Island. Documenting existing spawning runs is an important step in the restoration effort.
