Hudson River fish count Saturday
Ben Mitchell reports for News10 in Albany that New York's Department of Environmental Conservation hosts the 12th annual Great Hudson River Estuary Fish Count on August 5 at sites along the Hudson River Estuary. DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos said, “The annual fish count event provides a great opportunity for New Yorkers and visitors to get outdoors—or go online—and learn about the many fish species that live and thrive in the Hudson River.... With sites from New York Harbor to Cohoes, there are many places for young and old alike to participate in this year’s event.” Seine nets, minnow traps, rods, and reels are used to catch fish that are counted, and released. The state has set up the Great Hudson River Estuary Fish Count website for more information. Read more about this story at News10 in Albany.
