The Alewives’ Tale – The Struggle to Save a Dramatically Declining Species

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017 7:00 pm–8:30 pm
South Shore Natural Science Center

Barbara Brennessel
Free admission

Barbara Brennessel’s book, The Alewives’ Tale, describes the plight of alewives and blueback herring, collectively referred to as river herring, that have been economically important since colonial times as food, fertilizer, and bait. In recent years they have attracted much attention from environmentalists, especially as attempts are being made to restore the rivers, streams, ponds, lakes, and estuaries that are crucial for their reproduction and survival.
