Group Hopes to Restore Fish Population on MA River
January 5, 2015
VillageSoup.com: As it stands, fish migrating upstream on [Massachusetts’] Weweantic River to spawn have a 6’ high dam blocking their way to Horseshoe Mill Pond.
As a result, a once massive population of herring and rainbow smelt has become non-existent.
But after obtaining $365,000 in grant money, the Buzzards Bay Coalition hopes that modifying or removing the dam will boost the fish population and return the area to its former, natural glory.
