Juvenile Alewives @ Massapequa Creek!

Seatuck has documented juvenile alewife in Massapequa Creek. It is the first time young-of-the-year fish have been found in the creek. Their presence is clear evidence that alewives are successfully spawning in the freshwater portion of the tributary, likely for the first time since the creek was impounded more than 175 years ago!
