Celebrating alewives

The spring alewife runs were a boon this year after reconstructed fishways in some places and, in other places, more volunteers helping the fish to swim upstream into ponds to spawn. A June 2 celebration at Pierce Pond in Penobscot celebrated the new fishway there and at Wight’s Pond, plus offered tours of Walker and Parker ponds in Brooksville.
