What is a Herring Run?

A Herring Run is a natural phenomenon that occurs when herring fish migrate from the sea to freshwater rivers or streams in order to spawn in the same streams and ponds they were born in!

"These historically large migrations of fish into our freshwater streams, rivers, and ponds once supported the Native Americans, the Pilgrims, and the colonists who came after them. They would use the fish as fertilizer for planting and as a food source." - North and South Rivers Watershed Association
