Fishery Research

During the late 1960's through the early 1970's considerable research was done on both anadromous and saltwater fish in the Weweantic estuary. These studies today provide us with valuable information on past conditions here. Unfortunately no follow up studies have been undertaken on the Weweantics rich fisheries since that time. Because of the size of these documents, it is not practical to put them on the website. However they will be available at both the Wareham and Carver libraries after the first of the year.
