The Hudson River is one of the most scientifically-studied rivers in the world. This volume contains new findings about the ecological and environmental workings of the Hudson and the effects on fishes.

Chapter authors present important new findings, including a review of the hydrodynamics and physical and chemical conditions in the estuary; the impact of power plants on pelagic fish; the effects of pollution, climate, and nonnative plants and animals on the Hudson’s fishes; the importance of tributaries for some species; and the impact of human activities, such as angling and changing land use, on fish populations.
