Welcome

River Herring play an important role in the culture, ecology, and economies of coastal towns in Massachusetts. Because river herring are so important, many citizens dedicate a great deal of their time to protecting the rivers and ponds these fish spawn in.

The River Herring Network hopes that this website will serve as a place where herring wardens and river herring enthusiasts can communicate about their runs, learn from each other, locate assistance, and stay up to date on news and regulations.
