Running Silver

Once, Atlantic rivers "ran silver" with great runs of migrating salmon, shad, and sturgeon; today these runs are only relics. 

City University of New York biologist Dr. John Waldman draws on his book, Running Silver: Restoring Atlantic Rivers and Their Great Fish Migrations, to discuss why sea-river fish have dwindled in numbers, what we stand to lose, and actions needed to ensure their recovery. Discover the past, present, and future of these fascinating fish through research, historical accounts, anecdotes, and images.
