History and Modern Perspectives on the Fishes and Fisheries in the Quinnipiac Watershed
by Jon A. Moore
| The Quinnipiac River
watershed represents the fourth largest river system in Connecticut
and passes through one of the most densely populated portions
of the state. Most investigators have largely overlooked it.
However, many of the trends that are discussed in reference to
the Quinnipiac (i.e., early abundance of species, development
of fisheries, dam building, extirpation of anadromous fish runs,
pollution, and introductions of exotic species) are typical of
what was occurring contemporaneously in other watersheds throughout
