Shad at the ‘Shed

March 25 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association is exploring the theme of migration with the Princeton Migrations project, a community collaboration from February to May.

The Watershed will host a lecture from 3 – 5 p.m. on March 25. Come learn about efforts to restore once-great runs of American shad and other migratory fish to the Millstone River with Olaf Jensen, Associate Professor with the Department of Marine & Coastal Sciences at Rutgers University, and Steve Tuorto, Ph.D., Science Director at the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association.

When successful, the American shad migration will be restored in the Millstone River up to Lake Carnegie in Princeton.

 

Steve Meserve of the Lewis Fishery, the last commercial shad fishing operation on the Delaware River, will talk about his enterprise and stewardship of the river. He is the fourth generation to lead the Lambertville, NJ, business that dates back to 1888.

Want to learn how to tie a shad fishing lure? Come learn the technique from Trout Unlimited volunteers!

 Finally, Susan McLellan Plaisted of Heart to Hearth Cookery will demonstrate planking shad outside and will offer tasting samples.

 Come listen to these engaging speakers and watch some fish swim in our big tank at the Watershed Center.
