Distribution and Value of Alewives

ALEWIVES One species of this fish is found in waters adjacent to the Atlantic ocean, and never found south of the Neuse River in North Carolina. It is known along the Potomac as "branch herring", on Albemarle Sound as the "big-eyed herring" and the "wall-eyed herring", in New England as "Alewife," and on the Connecticut River as "ellwife" and "ellwhop." It appears in the rivers three or four weeks earlier than the "glut herring" and the shad. The other species of alewife is found from the Carolinas to the Coast of Maine. It is known in Chesapeake Bay and Albemarle Sound as "glut herring," in the Ogeechee River as "English herring", in the St. Johns River as "herring", and in Massachusetts and during the later runs in. the Rappahannock as the "blueback." This species is less abundant and less valuable as a food fish than the former. Both species average about a half pound in weight and from 8 to 10 inches in length. They are caught in nets, seines, weirs, etc., and besides being of great importance as food fish, are also used for bait. The name "alewife" is applied to the menhaden in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. The value of the alewife catch in 1908 was $589,000.
