Alewives

The annual migration of the alewife is at its peak in Maine. These fish return each year to Maine's rivers and streams--and their populations are growing due to collaborative conservation efforts throughout the state. Their growth in numbers has led to a spike in commercial harvest operations as well. What is happening statewide to continue to help alewives thrive?
