Paines Creek Herring Run – Brewster.MA.Life

Did you get to see the Herring run this season? Also known as Alewives and Bluebacks, river Herring have been migrating from the ocean to fresh water ponds and streams in Springtime for centuries. Native people as well as European settlers depended on them as a food staple. Today it is illegal to harvest river Herring in the Paine’s Creek estuary and across Massachusetts.
