MENHADEN The menhaden is a fish of the herring family, found along the Atlantic seaboard from Maine to Florida. It is known by a great many local names, some of them being "pogy". "hard-head", "bony fish", "bunker", "cheboy", "alewife," "oldwife", "fat-back", "shiner", etc. The average weight of the menhaden is from two-thirds of a pound to one pound. They are caught in purse seines, gill nets, set nets, and weirs. Their economic importance is due mainly to the oil and guano which are produced from them; they are also used as bait for mackerel, cod, halibut, haddock and sea bass. The menhaden is the most abundant fish found anywhere in the waters of the United States and forms one of the principal fishery products. Menhaden approach the coast waters upon the advent of warm weather and remain until the water cools. They are seen as early as March in Chesapeake Bay, but not until much later in the northern waters. Purse and haul seines are the principal forms of apparatus of capture; pound nets, gnl nets and trap nets are also used.
