U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Northeast Region


Many fish are mighty migrators!  Every spring and fall, millions of fish around the world are migrating between the oceans and our coastal rivers to produce new generations of fish. Millions more live in freshwater all year and are also on the move, some swimming 2,000 miles to spawn, feed and grow.

An effort to restore the Mill River in Taunton, MA, recently concluded with the removal of the West Britannia Dam, restoring access for migratory fish and preventing flooding in the community.

The Service and partners remove the Weston Mill Dam from New Jersey’s Millstone River, creating a time lapse of the process.
