  • Restoring a Fishery Downeast

    Abundant runs of river herring (blueback herring and alewives) once turned Washington County’s Orange River into “a miracle of water and life.” River herring, known to the Passamaquoddy as the “fish that feeds all,” once sustained wildlife from the Gulf of Maine and Cobscook Bay to the upper reaches of the watershed. Today, Maine Coast Heritage Trust is working with partners to revitalize the Orange River’s alewife run by conserving adjacent lands and improving fish passage.
