Is Susquehanna Dredging Affecting Spawning?
Region: North Eastern
Location: Lower Susquehanne River
Q: I was wondering if the dredging operation on the lower Susquehanna River, in Havre de Grace, MD is interfering with the spawning of White Perch, shad, and stripers?
A: The dredging operations in the Havre de Grace area was scheduled to be completed before the Striped Bass spawning which occurs in the Elk River for the most part. The White Perch, Hickory Shad and American Shad all spawn above the area that was being dredged so there should not have been any major problems.
