4/24/2019 Fish Tales: Restoring the Coonamessett River

Presented By: Linda Deegan,Ph.D. Woods Hole Research Center

Coastal rivers and the fish that inhabit them have been important throughout teh history of New England. Join us to hear the tale of the Coonamessett River, once so full of herring that a war was fought over the harvest.But, later, teh abundant herring perished when the river was straightened and dammed for waterpower and agriculture. Today, through restoration, this crown jewel of Falmouth is coming full circle back to being a river with plentiful fish and natural scenic beauty. Dr. Deegan will discuss how her work on herring migration has helped to shape the river’s restoration.
