Every spring, American eels migrate into the Hudson River estuary. Still in their beginning life stage, they are referred to as glass eels & resemble vermicelli noodles. Volunteers are trained to monitor a special v-shaped net (called a fyke net) placed in the Minisceongo creek. The net is monitored each day by volunteers who count, weigh, & relocate the eels above the nearest barrier. All data is recorded on data sheets & sent to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
