Mianus Fishway Volunteer Refresher/Training workshop

Wednesday, February 23, 2022

The Town of Greenwich Conservation Commission is looking to expand its current volunteer base and monitoring program at the Mianus Pond Fishway.   The fishway, which was constructed in 1993, allows diadromous fishes such as alewives and blueback herring that spend a portion of their lives in freshwater and saltwater to gain access to important spawning and feeding grounds in the Mianus River.  Although herring populations over the past two decades have drastically declined and remain in a depressed state throughout much of their range, the Mianus River fish ladder continues to support one of the largest fish runs in western Connecticut.    

As part of our effort to increase our volunteer monitor base, all interested residents are invited to attend a virtual workshop/informational meeting on Wednesday, February 23rd,  from 7:00 – 8:00 PM.  A PowerPoint presentation will be provided and followed by a question and answer session. Participants in the workshop will learn about the history of the fishway, the fishes that utilize it, how it is operated, and the duties volunteers are expected to perform.   No prior knowledge of fish passage is needed to attend.  Local residents, fishing groups, watershed employees, and town employees are encouraged to attend.

Pre-registration is required.  To register email to Registered participants will receive the Zoom link.
