Mill Pond Dam on Martha’s Vineyard and Sea Run Brook Trout

From an article last month in the Martha’s Vineyard Times about the Mill Pond dam and its effect on native fish:

The town of West Tisbury is currently investigating what should be done at the site of the town-owned Mill Pond, the last of seven manmade impoundments in the Mill Brook before it empties into Town Cove of Tisbury Great Pond less than a half mile to the south.

What to do, what to do. They’re still in the evaluation stage and it’s unclear (to me) if dam removal is on the agenda or if it would even affect the herring and native sea-run brook trout that inhabit the area. Something to keep an eye on.
