Correction/clarification: I caught a glaring inaccuracy in my story on the Mill Creek dredging. I accidentally let the American eel sneak in under the anadromous category when I know perfectly well, and have written in my column on numerous occasions, that the eel is not anadromous but instead travels into the ocean (Saragossa Sea) to spawn. It is in a bit of its own category in as much as it lives its life in both freshwater and saltwater, though it is still catadromous, technically -- the opposite of anadromous. By including the American eel in my story, I was referring to the return of elvers, baby eels, a.k.a. glass eels, which is in full progress.
