Happy World Fish Migration Day! Did you know there are over 2,900 dams in Virginia? Many aquatic organisms, especially migratory fish, benefit from the removal of dams. In 2004, the Embrey Dam located on the Rappahannock River was removed and many migratory fish species, such as Blueback herring and American shad, have since been documented as far as 28 miles upstream of the removal site (Source: Chesapeake Bay Program).
