Senior Fisheries Program Manager

To continue our work in light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 situation, Manomet is expanding our virtual programming. We invite you to join us for a webinar presentation led by Anne Hayden from Manomet’s Fisheries Division.

River herring are the foundation of healthy coastal ecosystems, which stretch from the headwaters of coastal watersheds through estuaries to the deeper waters of the Gulf of Maine. River herring are critical forage for fish, birds, and other wildlife. Populations are likely less than 10% of historic levels, due to dams, overfishing and pollution.

Growing momentum for river herring restoration is helping to rebuild populations of these ecologically important fish, enhancing coastal ecosystems, and increasing resilience to climate impacts. Join us to hear and see the thrilling upstream migration of river herring and learn about the outsized role that these small fish play in the health of rivers, estuaries and coastal waters due to their remarkable life history.
