Climb The Ladder

Ever curious to see how fish get up river when there are dams in the way and the fish ladders are non-operational?  +Bill McWha sent a link to two videos showing the transport of river herring up the Saugatucket River in Rhode Island...I personally find stuff like this incredibly interesting, hope you do too.

For more information on the plight of the river herring and other forage fish such as mackerel, menhaden, and shad, please visit the Herring Alliance, a group that works to protect marine wildlife and ecosystems on the Atlantic coast.


  1. It's like a Herring bucket brigade. Similar to what they did when they drew down Caples Lake to fix the dam. Moved all the fish to other lakes.

  2. Wow. And to thing that Nature could take care of this herself.

  3. Ok, I'll be the idiot that asks it. Why can't they just remove that little dam?
