Abstract : This species profile is one of a series on coastal aquatic organisms, principally fish, of sport, commercial, or ecological importance. The profiles are designed to provide coastal managers, engineers, and biologists with brief comprehensive sketch of the biological characteristics and environmental requirements of the species and to describe how populations of the species may be expected to react to environmental changes caused by coastal development. Each profile has sections on taxonomy, life history, ecological role, environmental requirements, and economic importance, if applicable. Keywords: Alewife; Blueback Herring; Freshwater Herring; Grayback; Gaspereau; Sawbelly; Kyak; Branch Herring; Glut Herring; Summer Herring; Black Belly; Life Cycles; Habitat; Spawning; Marine Biology.
