Barnstable Clean Water Coalition (BCWC) and the Barnstable Department of Natural Resources (DNR) are looking for volunteers to assist with the annual spring herring count beginning on April 1st at the Mill and Middle Pond fish ladders.
Amy Croteau (Barnstable DNR) will provide an update on the town’s herring runs.
John Sheppard, Diadromous Fisheries Biologist for the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF), will talk about how DMF estimates herring run sizes using visual count data collected by volunteers.
Following the speakers, there will be a brief training and refresher session for all new, interested and returning volunteers.
To volunteer or for more information, contact Heather Rockwell at email@example.com or 508-420-0780.
