The Herring Are Back!

News from the Stoney Brook herring run

Just like the more famous salmon runs, river herring return to their birth ponds to breed.  Spending most of their lives in salt water, they are drawn back up fresh water streams starting in March.  At first only a few, called scouts show up.  Soon they are joined by more and more, until the pools where they rest before continuing upstream are jammed, fish against fish, circling.

I share my gallery with my wife Diane Heart, whose porcelain and raku pottery blends beautifully with my work
