Dear volunteer counters, groups and associations:
The 2013 spring herring migrations are coming to a close in many of the rivers throughout the Commonwealth. The Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries (MarineFisheries) is charged with the management of the state's river herring populations and wants to know how your run did this year.
Many organizations and associations have received the MarineFisheries herring counting computer program and for those who do not have the program, MarineFisheries would be glad to assist you in estimating the size of your monitored run.
