Equipment Used
Wire basket fishing net
Fine mesh hand held cloth
Collect returning river herring and migrating young of
the year american eels from the outlet of Oyster Pond and the Trunk River
in order to estimate the flux of Hg into and out of this coastal ecosystem
with migrating fish.
Information to be Derived
Fish samples will be collected, weighed, subsampled, and
analyzed for Hg concentrations.
7 adult herring were collected 10 meters upstream of the
the Bike Path Bridge over the Trunk River. All fish were migrating
upstream.  Approximately 15 young-of-the-year American eels were collected
with a fine mesh net at the south end of Oyster Pond at the weir.
1 day at sea.
Data types: Fish samples will be collected, weighed, subsampled, and
analyzed for Hg concentrations.
Fish were collected between 8:30 and 9:30 PM on April
29.  Flow was strongly out at both locations.  Hand held nets on wooden
handles were used. Particpants did not use boots.  A large snapping turtle
was observed by flashlight for 5 minutes at the Oyster Pond Weir.
