Herring for Thanksgiving

The herring have arrived to Richardson Bay just in time for Thanksgiving. During yesterday’s spawn survey several hundred gulls, pelicans, cormorants and a few seals were seen chasing a herring school around the bay. A smattering of herring eggs (spawn) were found and based on the activity more spawning is likely to take place.
