Sudbury: Program on American eel to be presented at Assabet River NWR

Sudbury – “The Amazing American Eel: Its unique life history and restoration efforts in our local rivers” will be presented by Helen Dalbeck, Amoskeag Fishways Visitors and Learning Center Director, and Douglas Smithwood, Fishery Biologist, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Central New England Fishery Resources Office, Nashua, New Hampshire, Wednesday, Sept. 24, starting at 7 p.m., at the visitor center of the Assabet River NWR, 680 Hudson Rd.

 

The American eel is being considered for listing as an endangered species. Prior to colonial settlement, the American eel was probably the single most abundant fish species in the Sudbury, Concord and Assabet rivers. Throughout most of the eel's range, its population size has greatly diminished, particularly during the past 30 years. Of all the fish species that once migrated from the sea into the Concord River – including shad, river herring, sea lamprey and maybe salmon – the American eel has been the sole species that has been able to persist in this watershed. This may be because of its remarkable and surprising life cycle. Restoration efforts are currently underway in the Merrimack River watershed to help bring this species back to its former prominence. Come learn about the life cycle of the American eel and the restoration efforts that are occurring in our local rivers and throughout the Merrimack River watershed.

 

This is a presentation of the Friends of the Assabet River NWR, which holds a monthly speaker series at the Assabet River NWR. Talks are free and open to the public. For more information about programs, membership and the Refuge, visit www.farnwr.org.
