8th Annual Sea Lamprey Appreciation day at Amoskeag Fishways

We had so much fun last year, we went this year to the Lamprey Appreciation Day again!

Another historial nugget we learned today -- the lamprey were so numerous in the Merrimack River, that the people of Manchester (called Derryfield in the 1800s) that they were called Derryfield Beef.
