Eel Sampling in the Poestenkill

To monitor the eel numbers and to get the community engaged with the health of the waterways, the DEC casts out special nets every spring which are designed to catch “nothing bigger than a pencil.” Hudson Mohawk Magazine correspondent Sina Basila Hickey observed an early May eel sampling led by Sarah Mount, Science Educator with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
