·         Alewife Restoration Update by DMR Biologist Nate Gray at Georges River Trout Unlimited meeting in Rockport May 13

Georges River Trout Unlimited (GRTU) welcomes Nate Gray, Biologist with Maine Department of Marine Resources (DMR) for a talk on alewives.  Nate will discuss the ecological role of river herring in Maine and will provide an update on alewife restoration projects throughout Maine and within the midcoast region. Alewives are a keystone that many birds and river organisms rely on, including recreational species such as striped bass, brown trout and other salmonids. They have also played a longstanding role in human food security. Alewife restoration has been very successful in Maine, with immediate results and exponential increases of returning alewives.
