Aquarium biologist helps herring. Again.

Herring, or alewives, in Weymouth owe a lot to Aquarium biologist Scott Dowd (pictured at left). Not only did he help coordinate the first Live Blue Ambassador activity that involved clearing debris and trash from the herring run, he also helped herring trapped in a flood pipe after record rains in Massachusetts.

Read about Scott's efforts to free the trapped herring, along with other concerned citizens, in this Boston Globe article.
