Abstract

This is a report on the Anadromous Fish Development project. Using priorities established in AFC-1 and AFS-3, 14 fishways were constructed, four were improved, and another 51 were adjusted and cleaned. A total of 152,950 alewives were stocked in areas where passage improvements were made or are anticipated. Smelt eggs (10,000,000) were planted in Mill Creek, Sandwich. Shad eggs were stocked in the Charles River (3,372,700) and the Taunton River (10,174,300) in an effort to re-establish populations.
