Collect pre-spawning adult river herring from Trunk River in order to determine 
the flux of mercury in this coastal ecosystem by way of migrating fish.
Information to be Derived
Samples and chemical analysis;
Six adult pre-spawn river herring were collected  using nets from Trunk River, 
20 m upstream of the Bike Path bridge.  Wendy Buesseler (Oyster Pond 
Environmental Trust) had counted 75 herring passing upstream between sunset and 
2030 on March 31.
