In 2012, the Hudson River Research Reserve installed three low-cost “eel ladders” at key dams on tributaries to the Hudson River. Ladders can help eels get to crucial upstream habitats where they will mature.
The mission of HRNERR is to improve the health and vitality of the Hudson River Estuary by protecting estuarine habitats through integrated education, training, stewardship, restoration, and monitoring and research programs.
This program is operated as a partnership between New York State and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve and N.Y.S. Department of Environmental Conservation.
