NYC Parks, the Wildlife Conservation Society, the Bronx River Alliance and the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection stocked the Bronx River with 400 alewife herring on Thursday, April 20 in efforts to restore a native migratory fish run in the city’s largest freshwater river.

The fish stocking builds upon an ongoing effort to re-establish a self-sustaining population of these native fish serving as an important food source for larger fish, birds and other wildlife in our ocean, estuaries and rivers.
