Restoring Signature Fisheries

Species of Hudson River fish, like Atlantic sturgeon, American shad, American eel, river herring and striped bass, have experienced periods of dramatic declines in abundance over the years. Some of these fish populations are now responding in positive ways to management actions that were informed by scientific information. The Foundation has and will continue to add to this base of knowledge and integrate its work with fisheries managers of the river. The Foundation has recently funded three research projects related to sturgeon, river herring, and the biodiversity of Hudson River tributaries.
