Feature article on the migratory fish runs on five of Maine's major rivers. Around 800 shad were trapped and trucked upstream on the Saco River, around the same as last year. Only 5,000 alewives made the journey on the Androscoggin River, down from nearly 100,000 in 1989. The alewife run on the Kennebec River is up to around one million, still only a fraction of its potential. An unknow number of shad, alewives and bluebacks remain on the Penobscot River. Around 250,000 alewives ran the St. Croix River this year, down from 600,000 last year.
