Dr. Goddard-Doms will discuss fish throughout the watershed, from the top to the bottom. The fish at the top of the watershed are strictly freshwater, there are also diadromous and catadromous fish, and at least one species more commonly found in salt marshes at the mouth of Darby Creek. Dr. Goddard Doms will discuss some interesting aspects about the aquatic inhabitants of the Darby Creek
