The Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus) is a pelagic fish species occurring in the Northwest and Northeast Atlantic. Along the East Coast of North America, herring range from Labrador to Cape Hatteras. The major spawning grounds are limited to the northern regions of this broad distribution (Scott and Scott, 1988). Herring spawn in discrete locations to which they are presumed to home.
