Had my third herring-counting session yesterday, doing my dead-geezer-face-down-on-the-fish-ladder thing on a rather gray, raw, and gusty spring day. No fish at all.
If herring had vocal cords, I'm sure they'd be laughing.
I have another session next week, which is the usual week that the fish make it to the ladder.
Who knows with this past winter, though? Although globally it was one of the warmest ever, most of North America had unusual cold. The Great Lakes are still largely frozen, for example. ( http://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/record-great-lakes-ice-coverag/25816804 ) And the fish ladder here was a block of ice just three weeks ago.
Do herring shiver? Maybe that's the problem.
Anyway, another week, another count.
