Program Presenter, Peter Topping, Peconic Baykeeper
Join Pete and SOFO staff as we search for one of the East End’s most unique and threatened migratory fish species, the Alewife. Streams and rivers along the East Coast once “ran silver” every spring as alewives and other diadramous fish made their annual spawning migrations from saltwater to freshwater. Join us as we search for alewives in Southampton’s Alewife Creek. Along the way, we’ll learn about the history of these threatened and ecologically important fish as well as about the efforts being made to protect their future on Long Island. This will also be a great opportunity to see osprey, herons, and egrets, so bring binoculars
