Barbara Brennessel’s “The Alewives’ Tale”

Barbara Brennessel’s “The Alewives’ Tale”

In Barbara Brennessel’s book, “The Alewives’ Tale: The Struggle to Save a Dramatically Declining Species,” she describes the plight of alewives and blueback herring (collectively referred to as river herring) that have been economically important since colonial times as food, fertilizer, and bait. In recent years, they have attracted much attention from environmentalists, especially as attempts are being made to restore the rivers, streams, ponds, lakes and estuaries that are crucial for their reproduction and survival. She will speak about her book at the South Shore Natural Science Center.
