Shad of the Connecticut River with Steve Gephard

Sponsored by: Connecticut River Museum

“Shad of the Connecticut River” will review the life history of Connecticut’s State Fish, relate its importance throughout the history of the region, and describe interstate efforts to restore the run to portions of the watershed. The Connecticut River run of shad is one of the strongest on the East Coast and has been the subject of considerable scientific study. Steve Gephard is a Supervising Fisheries Biologist with the State of Connecticut, DEEP- Fisheries Division and has worked with migratory fish like shad for over 35 years. Steve grew up on the river, lives in Essex, and works out of the DEEP’s Marine Headquarters in Old Lyme.
