Information to be Derived
Samples and Chemical Analysis
Biological samples
Eel traps were set at three locations in Oyster Pond on
June 19.  Bait consisted of frozen striped bass, held in a 4 oz plastic
jar suspended next to the neck of the trap, close to the small end.  On
June 23, the traps were recovered.  The trap at the wooden dock at the end
of Ransom Road contained a small and medium size American eel.  The trap
at the north side of Spore s Garden had one large eel.  The traps were
reset with exising bait.  No eels were collected on June 26, and the traps
were removed.  On June 23, a dip net was used at the weir, just north of
Surf Drive to collect 26 young of the year river herring that were
migrating seaward.
3 days at sea.
Data types: Notes/logs
